Next Event - Wednesday 12th June

Visit to Balmoral Cottage, Benenden

An artist's garden with an eclectic mix of hardy perennials in a framework of topiary hedges and sentinels of all shapes and sizes. The garden, now mature, was mainly created from cuttings and seedlings on a minimal budget in what was once the kitchen garden of the estate of Cherry Ingram, a renowned Victorian plant hunter. The owner, Charlotte Molesworth, is in great demand to design topiary for other gardens and regularly works on estates and grand gardens.

£11 includes minibus, entry and refreshments.

Wednesday 21st August

Visit to Salutation Garden and nearby Sweetbriars Garden, Sandwich

The 3.7 acre Salutation Gardens are divided into a series of symmetrical rooms each with a different purpose, gathered around a unifying theme. They were designed in 1912 by Lutyens and in August will be exploding with colour and dahlias. The plant driven design incorporates an eclectic mix of heirloom, rare and drought tolerant plants. Within the gardens sits The Salutation; a hotel and restaurant. It was the first 20th century building to be granted Grade 1 listing and was also designed by Lutyens.

Sweetbriars is the exotic jungle garden of Steve Edney, Head Gardener at the Salutation and Louise Dowle. 

Cost £19 includes entry to both gardens and the minibus.
