The gardens at Collon House have been restored with appropriate period planting; the main entrance overlooks a sunken Box parterre with topiary and an intricate design layout in the 18th Century style. The ornamental garden contains Box-edged herbaceous borders with white Phlox, Delphiniums, Agapanthus and Hemerocallis while darker richer colour tones come from Penstemon, Dahlias, Asters and Golden Rudbeckia. A Greek-style summerhouse at the end of the garden is a restful viewpoint to review the colour schemes, old Roses, Wisteria and Clematis.
