Help our gardens grow by supporting our raffle

2014 sees the rooting of a new project for Knightshayes, as we launch our fundraising appeal to help restore the original glasshouses behind the kitchen garden.

You only need to look elsewhere in the Kitchen Garden to see how valuable your contributions are, as it was thanks to your support that we were able to restore it in the first place.
