Meet the makers at Rowallane Garden

Rowallane Pottery

At Rowallane Garden we are lucky enough to have some very skilled producers who make a range of products unique to the garden.

Rowallane honey - Lucy

It is well known how important bees are to our ecosystems and the important job they do pollinating our crops, but as an added benefit we get the pleasure of delicious honey.
 
Our bees our spoilt with 52 acres of pollen rich garden to feast on and gardener Lucy keeps them in tip top condition collecting any surplus honey to be jarred. You can find some of our distinctly floral Rowallane honey available to buy in the café.
 

Rowallane pottery - Matt

With a potter onsite throwing, firing and glazing a range of designs, it’s the perfect opportunity to see a skilled craftsman at work. Matt makes both stoneware pots for household use and hardy terracotta garden pots.
 
Pop by the pottery to watch Matt at work browse the showroom, or if you have something particular in mind why not have a chat about getting your perfect piece commissioned.
 

Wild about soap - Averil

Head gardener Averil puts her knowledge of plant properties and medicinal herbs to great use by combining it with soap making. The result is a range of cold processed soaps that include rosehip, marigold and geranium.
 
The process, taking 4 to 6 weeks from start to finish, starts with tea, involves Averil’s own airing cupboard, and uses luxury oils including olive and coconut. To find out more or to purchase some of your own, pop by Rowallane Garden, you may even find Averil harvesting flowers for her next batch.
