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.

Our opening season will begin on Wednesday 27th April (after the NGS open day) and we will be open until Friday 30th September. Our opening days will be Wednesdays, Fridays and most Saturdays.

Come along, see it for yourself and enjoy coffee and cake while you’re here!

Entry tickets will need to be pre-booked. Bookings will be open in the new year.

Standard Opening Hours

The garden will open on Wednesday 27th April and will close for the season on Friday 30th September. Our opening days will be Wednesdays, Fridays and most Saturdays.

Entry tickets will need to pre-booked by clicking here

Season tickets holders do not have to book, but please check we are open on the slot you are wanting to come, as the garden may be closed. If it says we are fully booked, please still visit with your season ticket.

If you are an RHS or  Garden Organic member please select the correct offer when booking your ticket then make sure to bring along your membership card.

Admission

It costs £6 to enter the garden, £2 for 2 yrs-16 yrs, and children under 2 go free – but all must be registered. There will be a small non-refundable booking fee added by the ticketing platform.

Sorry, we are a working farm: no dogs please. Assistance Dogs welcome.

Unfortunately, we’re currently unable to accept coaches.

See you there!

RHS Chelsea Flower Show

We have a gold-winning organic show garden at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show this September. We’re showcasing organic gardening and championing the soil. We’re using many of the plants that were due to go into the garden last year and adding some more autumnal flavour!

We’ve really enjoyed the journey to build our show garden – head over to the hub to find out how we’re getting on!

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 Tearoom

The Garden Tearoom

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

We don’t take bookings for the tearoom, but we’re open whenever the garden is – on Wednesdays and Fridays (plus some Saturdays!) throughout the season.

You do need to book your garden entry, click here for the garden page and more details on how to book!
