Tickets can be bought in advance through Trybooking.
The Gardens look lovely in June with the Italian Garden a riot of colour and the veg growing strongly in the walled kitchen garden. Children enjoy seeing the treehouse and there will be a children’s trail and craft activities.
There will also be a range of other stalls, including a plant stall, a local wood turner, crafts and jams; and we will be joined by Essex Wildlife Trust.
Our volunteers will provide locally sourced bacon, cheese or hummus rolls; homemade cakes; and hot and cold drinks until they run out – or till 4.00pm.
