The Gardens

由于其宁静的环境和牛津最大的花园,圣休经常被描述为岛上的地点,其中包括大约一半的14个花园.占地5英亩,由一个专门的三人小组负责照料.

在园林发展中的主要人物和第一个担任'Custos “Hortulorum”的主人是安妮·罗杰斯(Annie Rogers),她一直负责照料花园,直到1937年去世. 目前担任这一职务的是珍妮·格林教授.

主要的露台位于朝南的位置,这对于像大型灌木这样的嫩灌木来说是理想的生长位置 Punica (pomegranate). 草本植物的边界也受益于此,在过去几年里进行了大规模的翻新.

MGA的边界最初是由Jane Fearnley-Whittingstall设计的,最近增加了一个新的水景来补充该地区.

学院有幸拥有大量成熟和稀有的树木,其中许多是由约翰·艾尔斯博士种植的, 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.

在学院的西部,园艺系一直在清除草坪,播种野花草地种子,以促进学院的生物多样性和传粉者. 大学园艺师正在努力在整个基地实施有机和可持续的实践.
