We are delighted to announce our new Garden and Harvest festival with Toby Buckland in the grounds of Forde Abbey this September.
With so much to do at this productive time of year, the theme of the festival is “Autumn Harvest”, aiming to give gardeners a cornucopia of plants and information to bring back into their own plot. There will also be fantastic shopping available, with ample opportunity to stock up on beautiful well-grown plants, to purchase local crafts and gifts – and perhaps even to make a start on that Christmas list! This exciting new show is expected to attract over 150 exhibitors to the grounds of Forde Abbey and we are delighted with our profile of highly rated specialist nurseries attending this new event.
It’s set to be a weekend of autumnal gardening delights with delicious food and entertainment for all the family. As well as celebrating the fruits of the season, you can join us for a free programme of garden demos in the Kitchen Garden and talks from Toby and TV gardeners, Christine Walkden and Charlie Dimmock. Covering a range of what-to-do now topics, our experts will show you how to do all those essential autumn jobs. We will be posting a timetable of demo’s nearer the time or see the Festival brochure for more details. It’s very informal – demo’s are free and no booking is needed, just turn up.
Toby says “I’m delighted to bring the Garden Festival to Forde Abbey, not least because the gardens are stunning in autumn, with their aster-filled herbaceous borders, beautiful trees and abundant kitchen garden, which will provide a spectacular backdrop”.
The celebrity talks which run on both days of the festival will take place inside this historic building, in the Great Hall and in the Chapel.
