As holders of the National Collection of Dark-Leafed Dahlias, and steadfast fans of this diverse and vibrant group of plants, we've chosen to make Dahlias the centrepiece of our annual autumn garden festival.
Still in radiant bloom in the middle of September, our love of Dahlias stems from their generosity in the garden - tough, drought resistant, incredibly varied and in flower for months on end. Who could ask for more?
With interactive sessions from expert guests throughout the weekend, great food on hand from our kitchen team, visiting nurseries displaying their wares and our 4 acre garden laid out in all its late-summer glory, it's an unmissable event for anyone passionate about plants.
Throughout the weekend our Q&A table will be permanently manned to get all the advice you need on any plant or garden related topic.
Hosted by our own Head Gardener Steve Edney - the multi gold-medal winning, RHS-Committeeing, double-national-plant-collection-holding, radio-presenting, green-fingered gem - our approach is relaxed, inclusive and open to everyone, from the most fanatical floraphile to those who can find a way to kill anything.
All the sessions are free - simply buy your ticket to enter the garden (£8pp) or bring your annual pass.
