The Gardens

圣休常因其宁静的环境而被称为岛屿,并拥有牛津最大的花园,约占牛津14个花园的一半.占地5英亩,由一个专门的三人团队照看.

花园发展的主要人物和第一个担任Custos Hortulorum是安妮·罗杰斯(Annie Rogers)的名字,她在1937年去世前一直负责花园的照料. 目前担任这一职位的是珍妮·格林教授.

主露台位于朝南的位置,是嫩灌木如大灌木的理想生长位置 Punica (pomegranate). 草本植物的边界也从中受益,并在过去几年里进行了广泛的翻新.

MGA边界最初由Jane Fearnley-Whittingstall设计,最近增加了一个水景来赞美该地区.

学院有幸拥有大量成熟而稀有的树木,其中许多是由John Iles博士种植的, another of the gardens’ previous Custos Hortulorum. New and unusual additions have been Pseudopanax crassifolius, Broussonetia papyrifera, and Sassaffras trees. The Magnolia soulangeana is the crown jewel of the collection and sits in pride of place in the middle of main lawn; it was originally planted to commemorate the armistice and is now over 100 years old.

在学院西部,园艺部拆除草坪,种植野花草甸种子,有利于学院的生物多样性和传粉者. 学院的园丁们正在努力在整个场地实施有机和可持续的实践.
