Our first garden event of the year is a Wassail, on Saturday 10th February.
We’ll wake up the trees from their winter slumber. With our cups full o’ hot cordial and mulled cider we’ll raise a toast to the trees and the changing seasons. We'll look ahead to a new year of growth - to a buzzing, fluttering, wriggling, chirping, hopping garden - and a plentiful harvest!
2.30 - 4pm Craft activities for children and families Making ‘Wassailing’ instruments and garden leaf night lights* in Training Room 3.
