Event details

22 April 2017 - 10:00am - 3:00pm

Come and buy vegetable and ornamental plants and plant supports whilst learning about bee-friendly and wildlife gardening. We have a range of beanpoles, peasticks and plant supports made from locally managed coppice, and your purchase helps maintain this tradition. There are guided walks activities for children, or you can make bird boxes and plant supports.

We have vegetable and ornamental plants grown by charitable organisations, and a range of beanpoles, peasticks and plant supports to grow them up. Our plant supports come from locally managed coppiced woodland and your purchase helps maintain this traditional technique.

There are a range of activities all day including demonstrations of products using this source of traditionally managed timber, guided walks around the old walled allotments, activities for children and activities to make bird boxes and your own plant supports. The garden kiosk is open for light refreshments.

There is no long term parking on site. Enter the gardens on foot through the main entrance on Church Road or through the churchyard on The Warren. We will have a 'creche' for your purchases and a system for driving into the creche for collection.
