  • Booking not needed
  • Free event (admission applies)

Head out on a garden adventure inspired by the book 'Ruby Plants a Radish', written by Kate Petty and illustrated by Axel Scheffler.

Explore the various activities in the walled garden and find out how radishes grow. Spin the tiles to play the weeding game, go on a hunt for hiding ladybirds, and have fun in the muddy play patch.

Head into the house to search for the crocheted radishes as you explore each room, and visit the kitchen to play with the weather station - can you show what the weather is like outside?
