Kitchen Garden restoration

During your visit, stop in at the Kitchen Garden which is undergoing a restoration project to return it to the 1930s arrangement. During the winter months, new beds were planted with rhubarb and soft fruit. A 260m run of herbaceous borders is currently being planted, and the apple espaliers are now in place, They will take 3 years to train into form.
All this work is made possible by our gardening team with essential help from our garden volunteers and willing South West College students.
