The Garden

Free Trees

Thanks to the bumper crop of acorns and walnuts last year I have several baby oak and walnut saplings growing in the garden. They need new homes and I’d be delighted to give them to any one who has the space to accommodate one, two or more and are able to nurture them into adulthood.

November to March is the best time to plants trees as they are in their dormant state. Please let me know if you are interested in taking a tree or know someone who might be planting a new woodland or copse. The trees are only one or two seasons old and they will need to be either healed in or planted straight away.

Email or drop by on the 16th November 10.30am – 2.30pm to collect a tree(s).

Garden Visits

We welcome horticultural clubs, gardening clubs and group visits to the garden. Experience the garden and the wonderful variety of plants and shrubs throughout the seasons from April to October. Garden tours, questions and answer sessions, cut flowers, plants for sale and refreshments can be provided. Alternatively, if you are looking for a speaker I’m happy to bring the garden to you! in the form of a slideshow and talk.

Please email Gabi

Opportunities and Volunteering

We welcome volunteers to help out in the garden. Our usual work day is a Tuesday, if you fancy getting out in the fresh air, immersed in nature, being part of a team in a wonderful garden and lending a hand or you know someone who does, please do get in touch.

There is always a job that needs doing to keep the garden running smoothly and looking good, either in the garden or the greenhouse. And theres always tea and coffee and usually cake!
