The Workhouse garden attracts birds, insects and butterflies

Workhouse Wildlife

Discover our Victorian vegetable garden which attracts birds, butterflies and insects throughout the year.

Our gardeners plant 'companion crops', to attract insects, who then help with the pollination of the fruit and vegetable crops.

The flowers are a joy to behold and the garden provides the perfect place to relax or have a picnic.

Hyssop

Our gardeners plant hyssop in the garden as a companion plant. It attracts bees, which helps with the pollination of crops.

Chives

Chives have surprisingly colourful flowers. The shoots are very tasty in salads, with cous-cous and as a garnish.

Borage

Borage flowers are traditionally seen floating in Pimms as a lovely summery touch.
