Welcome to Hydrangea Derby

Hydrangea Derby was set up in 2010 by the Friends of Darley Open Spaces (FoDOS) to assist Derby City Council to maintain and extend this already large collection of Hydrangea.  It’s the largest in the UK and the third largest in the world!  You’ll also see us on Facebook and Twitter.  Click here for our Leaflet 2018.  The 2019 Open Day is on Sunday, 4 August.  More information to follow.  Private tours are from Monday 5 August to Friday 9 August:  morning, afternoon or evening.  Contact us via the contact page for more information.

You will find information about:

  • The Darley Park National Collection of Hydrangeas
