Informative & inspirational events, talks, courses & workshops

The Garden House is a place of energy and inspiration that encourages sustainable living, and where people can learn about horticulture, share information and be creative!

Covid-19 / Coronavirus: The garden is looking so lovely and we are sorry you cannot come and enjoy its beauty but for the time being each of us must remain isolated.  We have suspended all events here at the Garden House.  Please rest assured we will honour any bookings made either by offering an alternative date for the course, workshop/talk, or refunding the fee.  We are (rather slowly, we admit) getting in touch with you all individually regarding events and trips booked. 

Do follow us on Instagram @Gardenhouse – each day we’re posting an image from the garden to lift your spirits.
