Nice day for it!

“Just a couple of hours”, I say to myself – and an hour or so later, I’m still there… That’s the thing about Abbey Gardens. It’s a lovely place to be on a sunny day. And right now, after the success of Charlie’s greenhouse, there’s lots to plant out and pot on.

Save the date

Mark your calendar and put a note in your diary… it’s our Summer Fair on Saturday 9 June, 2-5pm. We’re delighted to welcome Jamie’s Ministry of Food Stratford who will be doing a cooking demonstration, you can help make our community picnic rug, go on a walk starting and finishing at the garden, make a mini bug hotel to take home, join a garden tour and there’s our ever-popular tea and cake stall.

We’re also taking part in Open Garden Squares weekend, 9 and 10 June, from 10am to 5pm.
