Winter in the garden
With winter well underway, the garden at Fulham Palace has become very atmospheric. Beautiful silhouettes of our deciduous trees take a staring role and the bare bones of our historic site is revealed. There are however many evergreen trees still holding their form. Our much loved 500 year old Holm Oak, Quercus ilex, a Great Tree of London and one of the oldest of its kind in Britain, stands wide and tall, unaffected by the wintery weather.
The Fulham Palace walled garden is well worth a visit even though winter is not the season for production or growth. At this time of year you can really appreciate the vastness of the space encompassed by the walls. The garden is just over 1 hectare (about 2.5 acres).
Look out for:
- Sparkling frosts on the grass and borders
- Beautiful tree silhouettes
- Birds on our feeders at the Church yard end
