Visitors to The Savill Garden throughout September and October will be able to explore and enjoy a display of imaginative and innovative sculpture, forming an exciting exhibition around the Garden. The sculptures are inspired by the natural world. All pieces are available to purchase and standard Savill Garden entry fees apply.

Head of The Savill Garden, Harvey Stephens says:

“The exhibition is intended to appeal to people with gardens of all sizes and the sculptures are affordably priced. The Savill Garden is the perfect backdrop to enjoy these imaginative sculptures. With thirty-eight pieces, there is something interesting around every corner. The materials used include stainless steel, copper, brass and blown glass which are striking against the natural backdrop of the Garden. ”

Sculptor and exhibition organiser Mike Bigland adds:

“My sculptures do not imitate nature but draw from the essential structure and representation of the plants. The pieces enhance summer plantings and provide plants and flowers through the winter against a backdrop of stone walls, hedges and evergreen areas. They also provide a habitat for insects and shelter from predators. The structures warm up quickly in the sun which attracts insects; and catch the snow in the winter.”

The Savill Garden will look stunning throughout September and October. The Herbaceous Borders will be looking fantastic in September. Measuring over 100m long and 11m deep, innovative new planting over recent years based on the idea of creating flowing ribbons of intense primary colours from yellow through orange to red and purple, giving the traditional concept of border design a modern twist.

For visitors to the Rose Garden, as the roses begin to fade into September, it will be the turn of the majestic grasses miscanthus and molinia to take a lead. With their robust clumps of graceful foliage topped by feathery grass flowers of silvery plum, the miscanthus sways in the breeze, giving another dimension of movement to the design of the Garden.

In October, visitors can enjoy the glorious autumn colour, with magnificent displays reaching their peak in mid to late October. Japanese maples are the backbone of The Savill Garden displays and can be found in a huge range of different forms. Their leaves vary in colour from butter yellow, to orange, red and the intense claret of the famous old cultivar, ‘Ozakazuki’.

After an invigorating walk around The Savill Garden, visit the Savill Building and refresh yourself in The Savill Restaurant or the Gallery Coffee Shop, where you can enjoy a freshly made cup of coffee and homemade cakes. You can also visit the superb gift shop and outdoor plant centre.
