Volunteers enable Ham House Garden to thrive. Our large garden team is made up of over 80 volunteers and five full time staff. Each volunteer contributes to the garden – from leading garden tours to weeding, from propagation to step sweeping, everybody plays their part. During lock-down, our volunteers have shown staff the other Ham House gardens...

During lockdown, our garden team was initially reduced to three staff and we now have only two to three volunteers joining us each day. Our team is currently tiny! Yet, our extended team is still gardening... 

Our volunteers have shared their own gardens, patios and pots with us through pictures and emails from early spring to almost summer. Through these photos we are visiting their gardens and learning more about what they grow. We are sharing them more widely at this time to enable everybody to see and enjoy these other, beautiful Ham House Gardens.
