The Harris Garden in winter

The Harris Garden on Reading University’s Whiteknights campus remains open throughout the winter.

The Friends of the Harris Garden have been hard at work tidying and pruning ready for the blaze of colour expected this spring.

The Friends will be hosting a talk by Ben Jones, an arboretum curator from Oxford University, at the Harborne building near the Harris Garden on Monday 20 February at 7.15pm.

Meanwhile, visitors can enjoy the garden’s subdued colours and stark lines, especially on frosty January mornings.
