Wolfson College Gardens
The College gardens are a source of pride at Wolfson, thanks to Head Gardener Phil Stigwood and his team.
Phil is always keen to share his knowledge of the gardens and describe how he has developed the planting over the years.
We are fortunate that, although most of the buildings are relatively new, the site is well established, and much of the land now occupied by the College was laid out as gardens belonging to houses in Selwyn Gardens and Barton Road in the first half of the twentieth century. As the College has grown, certain landmark trees, such as the mulberry outside the Porters' lodge, the Judas tree in the front court and the magnificent redwoods outside Fuchs House have been retained as features alongside the new planting.
As well as bringing you news of tours and seasonal highlights to watch out for, these pages offer a gallery of seasonal photographs showing some of the best views of the site at different times of year.
