The Organic Garden

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 began on Wednesday 21st April and will be open until Saturday 30th October. Our opening days will be Wednesdays and Fridays in September and then Saturdays only in October. We’ll be bringing some of our RHS Chelsea Flower Show garden back to the valley in October so there will be some new additions for you to see too!

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

Entry tickets will need to be pre-booked.

RHS Chelsea Flower Show

Yeo Valley Organic garden at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show

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.

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!
