Gardens in the Wild Header, Garden Festival Hereford

Whitfield Estate HR2 9DG

24/25 June 2017

We have moved our festival to South Herefordshire to Whitfield. The house has an outstanding garden set in beautiful parkland with remarkable trees and wild flowers.  

We made the move because we wanted to include the stunning gardens and wild places to walk in this area. The format will remain the same, talks and stalls at the house in the morning and early afternoon with an opportunity to visit gardens and to walk in the wild in the afternoon.

Speakers 

On Saturday - Sarah Price, Timothy Mowl, Jinny Blom and Peter Garner

On Sunday - Noel Kingsbury and Caroline Hanks, Anna Pavord, Timothy Walker, Mary Keen and James Clapp 

Clustered in the garden at Whitfield will be stalls selling plants and gardenalia. There will also be plenty of delicious food


Gardens open for GITW

Brockhampton Cottage, Grendon Court, Thruxton Rectory, Kentchurch Court, Nant y Bedd, The Pant and Court-y-Pella. These will all be covered by a roving ticket.

Come and walk in Herefordshire Wildlife Trust reserves, Crow Wood and The Parks


Supper and tour
 
On Saturday evening, Ted Clive, the owner of Whitfield, will host a guided walk through the park and gardens. Whitfield is famous for its trees which include a Ginko with a recording breaking girth planted in 1780. Return to a welcome glass of wine followed by a supper of tagine, couscous, salad and strawberries and cream.

To book go to the Events page and follow the directions.

I'm already looking forward to GiW 2017: to hear renowned speakers, buy unusual plants, walk with expert guides and visit a fascinating selection of private gardens. I can think of no better way to spend a summer weekend.” Helena Attlee, author of The land where lemons grow



“A great festival with a strong personality and clear focus, set in the heart of one of the UK's most vibrant garden-making counties.”
