Gardens

Take a look around the beautiful gardens at Darley Park

Hydrangea Collection

The Hydrangea Collection began when it was first planted in 1984. Since April 2010 the collection has been maintained in partnership with a subgroup of Friends of Darley Open Spaces (FoDOS) called Hydrangea Derby.

The collection is the largest in Britain and the third largest in the world. It now holds over 400 different types and is still growing.

The Hydrangea Derby Project enables volunteers to help in weeding, pruning, mulching, locating and propagating new types of plant, cataloguing and marketing the collection. It also puts on opening days.

For more information on events, or to get involved with the group, visit Hydrangea Derby's website.

Butterfly garden

The butterfly garden is situated next to the Hydrangea Collection and boasts a beautiful array of butterflies - they are a sight to see in the summer months.
