Perennial’s history is rooted in the country houses and great estates of Britain and we’re delighted that our annual programme can continue due to their constant support, and the support of owners and Head Gardeners who care and maintain beautiful gardens around the UK. Our 2017 programme was a huge success and we’re already working on our 2019 calendar of garden tours! Friends of Perennial enjoy priority booking for all our Special Events. Find out more here
