Inspiration for your food growing!

OpenFoodGardensThis medium-sized garden near St Albans city centre is opening for the second time, after a successful event last year.  The top part of the rear 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.

Poppies and onions

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 Shed!

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.

Garden visits are free: suggested donation £2 for over 16s; all proceeds go to TSA funds.
