Halloween with a difference! We are planting a Halloween potager bursting with plants for this season, some poisonous and creepy, with frightening foliage and weird shapes besides plump pumpkins, and grizzly gourds. Throughout the weekend our gardeners will be on hand to share their Halloween horticultural tips, there will be pumpkin carving demonstrations, and our Tea room will be serving Halloween treats. Enjoy the colours of autumn on this, our penultimate, weekend of the season.
More details will be posted on our website in due course.
No booking required.
