Sat 9 & Sun 10 Jun 2018
Witley Court and Gardens
Join us for a weekend of green-fingered fun. The flora and fauna of Witley's wonderful grounds will take centre stage as we celebrate all things horticultural. Join our gardening team, led by Witley Court's Head Gardener Jasmine, for talks and demonstrations.
Throughout the day there will be garden tools, machines and plants from Witley's grounds on display, and our gardeners will be on hand to discuss all things horticultural! We will also be having a chainsaw carver showing off his artistic skills.
Budding young gardeners can get their hands dirty and sow sunflower seeds, take part in our nature trail and enjoy garden games.
