Better than Chelsea Flower Show and room to move – not just flowers…but fruit and vegetable growing; herbs; sustainable food growing solutions and new small garden designs to inspire you!
You will have the opportunity to talk to the gardener and take your time exploring the different elements of the garden.
This very special Open Food Gardens programme starts this month
13 Abbey View Road St Albans AL3 4QL
This medium-sized garden near St Albans city centre is new to the Open Food Garden programme this year. The top part of the garden is mainly given over to flowers, lawn and a seating area, interspersed with a few food-producing plants such as rhubarb, with herbs grown in a bed near the house.
At the far end the owners grow a wide variety of fruit (mainly soft fruits, plus a vine) and vegetables (including potatoes, broad beans, spinach, carrots, leeks, parsnips and onions).
The garden features use of various reclaimed materials, a tumbler composter and several water tanks and butts.
On-street parking is very limited; bikes can be locked in the garden. Wheelchair access to the garden is restricted. No dogs please except guide dogs.
Suggested donation of £2.00 for over 16s; all proceeds go to TSA funds.
