Hortulus Farm is part of an original William Penn land grant of 1682. The Isaiah Warner house, built in 1793, is the anchor around which the gardens were created by owners landscape architect Renny Reynolds and writer Jack Staub. The gardens are composed of twenty-four separate, formal gardens on 30 of the farm's 100 acres, including pastoral walks, idyllic ponds and streams, intriguing follies, and dramatic vistas. In spring, the property is ablaze with over 200,000 daffodils, narcissus, bluebells, native dogwoods, and Delaware Valley white azaleas. Particularly notable later in the season are imposing perennial and summer borders, a lush stream garden, a woodland walk, birch and pine allees, pool and fountain gardens, and a splendidly reconceived kitchen garden. Hortulus Farm was made the second only in their history Affiliate Garden of The Garden Conservancy in 2014 and is a member of Greater Philadelphia Gardens.Use our Newtown travel route builder tool to arrange your visit to Hortulus Farm Garden and Nursery and other attractions in Newtown.

This place is truly magical. The self guided tour is perfect. You can go at your own speed and take in the lush beauty all around you. The folks that run the place are very nice and genuinely want you to have a great experience. GO! you will love it!
I have known Renny & Jack since the early 1970's. I fondly remember the early days of the farm. Spending many weekends at the farm their energy and creativity was boundless. I recognize much of the original landscaping in the videos and the growth and expansion is amazing! My only regret is that I did not buy the property next to them. So good to see that all is restored and preserved for the future . Fondest memories, Phillip E Collins
