Canons Ashby Garden Experience 11th May 2017


Spend a day at Canons Ashby and learn how the garden team care for the rare terraced gardens.

Date: Thursday 11th May 2017

Theme: "In the Kitchen Garden - Restoring the garden to its 1880 design"

As part of a small group, you will begin the day with a tour of the terraced gardens led by head gardener Chris Smith. Canons Ashby's formal gardens are a stunning scenic example of early 18th century garden design. During your tour you will learn more about Sir Henry Dryden, who inherited the estate in 1837 at just 19 years old.
After a delicious lunch served in the cafe, you will take part in a practical session, learning about the vegetable production and the fresh produce used to supply the Stables Tearoom, maintaining Sir Henry's tradition of growing the food needed for his Tudor kitchen.

This is the perfect hands on session for any kitchen gardener and you will head home with a souvenir plant from the day. .
