Thyme to talk - gardening at Beningbrough

Join one of a series of free 30-minute sessions with the garden team, focussing on one aspect of their work and the gardens at Beningbrough.

  • Booking not needed
  • Free event (admission applies)

Expect an informal talk with some practical hands-on tips and demonstrations depending on the focus.

18 June - Everyone loves the sweet scent and beauty offered by a rose. However, they can be known to be tricky to keep healthy with pests hindering their performance. Using the shrub and climbing roses in the borders, get an insight into their care and top tips for your own green space.

16 July & 17 Sept - Learn more about the Mediterranean gardens, the work we are doing to create them and some of the ideas behind their design.

20 August - One of the most popular garden areas is the walled garden. The two acres have a mix of trees, shrubs, and wall trained fruit with lots of vegetables and other crops underplanted and seeded in the beds. Find out how the team plan their crops, care for and sow in order to maximise production, and beauty from this space.

Come along and join in on the sessions - check with the welcome team on arrival for meeting points.
