Come and see over 70 varieties of dahlia at Eden, learn about their garden history and what makes them so worthwhile to grow.

Salvias come in a range of colours and flower into the autumn, from the calming hues of blues and deep purples to warming variations of reds and sharp pinks. This makes our splendid display irresistible to bees as well as our human visitors at this time of year.
