About the garden

Come and be inspired to grow produce in your own garden. This aspirational kitchen garden features simple, fun growing methods that are easy to try at home without too much outlay.

Though it looks grand, the emphasis is on making the most of small growing spaces. With a focus on upcycled and recycled planters and innovative window boxes, there are plenty of take-home ideas and techniques that you can try in any setting – even the tiniest urban balcony.

An outdoor classroom set within the garden is helping to educate the next generation of gardeners, and chefs from the Raymond Blanc Gardening School are helping with cookery demonstrations in the outdoor cooking area. Raymond Blanc has produced recipe cards for dishes using vegetables that feature in the garden.

Thanks also to Marshalls.
