What to see in our organic garden in August
The ornamental garden will continue to put on a show this month, with coneflowers and rudbeckia injecting the colour, and grasses providing the texture. Make the most of our bountiful, sweet-smelling herbs, which you can find in containers and as part of our unusual 'herb hedges'. Our team will be in full harvesting mode with lots of juicy greenhouse vegetables ready for picking. Much of our edible produce is passed on to the Salvation Army.
Organic inspiration on our garden tours
These 45-minute tours enable you to see all of the organic principles in action - with inspiration and ideas to get you gardening in a more sustainable and eco-friendly way.
Guided by an expert team, our organic demonstration garden tours allow you to go behind-the-scenes of our working garden and learn more about composting, gardening without peat and pesticides, and ways to encourage more wildlife.
You'll be able to explore our no-dig trial area, ornamental garden, large vegetable patch featuring our Heritage Seed Library vegetables, National Comfrey Collection and several wildlife ponds. There are also different sections dedicated to maximising container gardening, vertical spaces and gardening for climate change.
There will be an opportunity for you to ask the experts your organic gardening questions, and further time for you to explore and enjoy the garden on your own. Light refreshments will be available, and we recommend wearing clothing and footwear suitable for the outdoors.
