Toby Buckland and Rachel de Thame


The planets have aligned! and for our 10 year Birthday Bash, we have the most amazing line-up of speakers including my friend, the wonderful Rachel de Thame!

Rachel’s passion for gardening is infectious (as is her laugh!) and she’ll be speaking and signing copies of her hot-off-the-press new book ‘A Flower Garden for Pollinators’ on Saturday the 4th of May. Can’t wait.

Just a reminder… our talks take place in three main arenas, and all of them are on a first-come, first-served basis and free! Add in the demos and ad-hoc entertainments across the gardens and inside the Castle and the only challenge is making a wish-list of what to see and do and sticking to it!.

A nice problem to have…

Here’s to Springtime
