The Vegetable Garden
The vegetable garden has changed most in the last couple of years as production has been stepped up to supply Hathaways, our new café, with fresh salad, fruit and vegetables. The fencing around part of the vegetable garden is to keep rabbits at bay but visitors are very welcome to enter. The Christmas trees, which grew in the section opposite the maze, have been cleared for fruit trees and a new member of staff has been employed specifically to grow produce. (The Gardens as a whole employ one full-time and three part-time gardeners.) An area of the vegetable garden opposite the greenhouse has been set aside for the local childrens' Gardening Club to grow herbs and medicinal plants.
