Head Gardener Andi Strachan

Andi, head gardener

Alongside our farms and staff canteen, we have an organic garden that’s open to visitors. It’s six and a half acres of ornamental and edible plants in a seasonal patchwork that we’ve been constantly evolving since we started more than 18 years ago.

Come along and see it for yourself and pop into our café while you’re here.

Update 28th September: We are now closed to visitors for the season. We’ll be open again in April 2021, keep an eye on this page for details.

Explore The Garden

The Avenue

We planted the avenue in 1995; lined with Tea Crabapple trees (or Malus hupehensis, to the uninitiated), it’s at its most beautiful when the blossom is out in May.

Meadow

The Meadow

We sowed our perennial meadow over 10 years ago and it’s continued to flourish. After flowering, the meadow is cut and the seeds left to drop so the wild flowers can continue to bloom year after year.

The Gravel Garden

From the bees’ paradise of the thyme bank to beautiful herbaceous planting, the gravel garden is a true tapestry of colour. Most of the plants have come from our friends at the organic nursery Caves Folly.

The Veggie Garden

On what was once a tennis court sits a mixture of veg and flowers – our ornamental kitchen garden. We grow all our own plants here – even the supports are hazel and willow from the garden. Our seeds come from Tamar Organics.

Events

We put on all sorts of events, workshops and tours. Here’s a taste of what we’ve got coming up:

The Garden Café

The Garden Café

No visit to the garden would be complete without a light lunch or cup of tea and slice of cake. There’s a terrace for sunny days and a wood burner inside for when its chillier.

We don’t take bookings, but we’re open whenever the garden is – on Thursdays and Fridays throughout the season.

Our Head Gardener Andi recently welcomed Tipper Lewis to the Yeo Valley Organic Garden. Tipper is the brand Ambassador and Naturopathic Herbalist at Neal’s Yard Remedies so really is the person to ask about herbs! After a tour, she showed us how to use the organic herbs from the garden in a seriously special tea!
