We have two polytunnels and a small craft and carpentry workshop. The gardens are tended by a hard working team of volunteers of mixed ability and ages from 18 to 96. Adjoining parkland is perfect for a picnic. Opens Sunday 14th July.

There are numerous rare, unusual and tropical plants combined with traditional and well loved favourites (many available for sale). A pond with a small waterfall adds to the tranquil feel of the garden. Opens Saturday 20th and Sunday 21st July.
