An unmissable highlight of a visit to Altamont Gardens situated within the grounds of the estate and run privately by the gardener and nurseryman Robert Miller. The area consists primarily of the Corona North Commemorative Border planted to honour the late Corona and Altamont Plant Sales and Nursery. Each border has its own individual theme and colour from striking reds to cool whites and blues, romantic pinks and warm yellow glow. Altamont Plant Sales has not only grown in size in the last few years but more so in reputation as a place to acquire seriously good garden plants. Always renowned for its extensive range of herbaceous perennials, Altamont Plant Sales can also boast of having one of the largest collections of old shrub roses available for sale to the gardening public year round. Rare oaks, maples, cherry blossoms, godwoods, magnolias, beech and smaller flowering trees and shrubs suitable for every sized garden are also available throughout the year. Robert Miller of Altamont Plant Sales is available for consultancy work for new and mature gardens.
