Sun 16 Jul Garden Day

Details

There’s a lot happening in the gardens at the moment and we want to celebrate all that is great about gardening. Join us in our garden marquee to hear garden experts talk about their work; watch demonstrations of willow weaving, flower arranging and bee keeping; sample food that will include ingredients from our kitchen garden; listen to live music and let younger visitors take part in the garden quiz. Most of all – enjoy a day in our gardens!
