Batsford Arboretum, one of the jewels of the Cotswolds and one of the largest private collections of trees and shrubs in the country.
Situated one and a half miles west of Moreton-in-Marsh (Gloucestershire – UK), Batsford Arboretum is tucked away on a south facing escarpment of the famous Cotswold Hills. Batsford Arboretum is a 55-acre (220,000 m2) arboretum and botanical garden near Batsford in Gloucestershire, England, about 1½ miles north-west of Moreton-in-Marsh. It is owned and run by the Batsford Foundation, a registered charity, and is open to the public daily throughout most of the year.
The arboretum sits on the Cotswold scarp and contains around 2,900 trees, with a large collection of Japanese maples, magnolias and pines. It maintains the national collection of Prunus (sato-sakura Group) — Japanese Flowering Cherry — under the NCCPG National Plant Collection scheme run by the National Council for the Conservation of Plants and Gardens.
