Asthall Manor Winter Garden Open Day

11th February - 10:00 am - 3:00 pm

Come and see Asthall in all its winter beauty. Wander through the masses of naturalised snowdrops and take in the views over the river Windrush.

See how we have pruned the roses in our extraordinary way. It is a beautiful and very sculptural process where we bend, twist and turn rose stems back into themselves to create an intricate and beautiful work of art. This pruning method produces the abundance of flowers that were known for.

Discover the open fire in the lake house and spot our newly developing fernery.

Head gardener Owen Vaughan will be at the front of the house at 11am to give a short talk on our rose pruning methods 

At midday our gardener and resident fern expert Neil Frame will be by the lake house to give a short talk on the development of our fernery. 

Monies raised will go to Asthall Manor Kitchen Garden’s upcoming workshops and development, supporting Tim Mitchell’s Kitchen Garden mission to grow healthy and wildlife friendly food, using organic methods and permaculture principles.

There will be a plant sale in the ballroom where you’ll find plants grown from the gardens. 

Will will also be offering plants for sale from Fibrex Nurseries.
