Who Can Resist a Garden Full of Summer Berries?

On Tuesday 2nd August from 3- 5pm a large garden at 104 Marshalswick Lane is opening as part of our Open Food Garden summer programme. You can drop-in any time between 3-5pm to have a look around this large well-established garden, get some inspiration for your own food garden design and tips from the gardener and other visitors.

There are two large cooking apple trees and more recently planted quince, minarette apples, espalier and minarette pear trees. Soft fruit includes raspberries and blackberries. Early and late strains of rhubarb are also grown. Vegetables include sweetcorn, courgettes, squash, leeks and climbing French beans.

 Some unusual features include Yacon (a sweet tuber), oca and perennial leeks and cabbages. There are also some perennial herbs.
