Get Your Garden Growing!
Grow Your Own / Seed Swap event at Chiswick House's Walled Gardens
Be inspired to get your garden growing this spring at Chiswick House Walled Gardens on Sunday 20th March from 10am till 4pm.
Information and advice will be on hand to motivate you to grow your own fruit and vegetables. There will be fun and gardening based activities for all the family. There will also be information and activities on how to make your garden more wildlife friendly.
Bring your spare seeds (vegetable or flowers) to our Seed Swap and see if you can pick up some new seeds for your own garden. If you don’t have any spare seeds to swap there will be some to buy. Plants grown by the Chiswick House and Gardens Trust will be on sale.
The Trust’s Community Gardener Karen Roberts said: “This year we are trialling a newly designed raised bed system which claims to shorten the time between the planting and harvesting of common vegetables – come and have a look! We have also planted out historic varieties of fruit tree over the winter and the garden is really taking shape.
"We are pleased that Chiswick Horticultural Society and Abundance London will have stalls on the day so it’s a good opportunity to find out what they can offer too."
Entry is from Dukes Avenue only and with an entrance fee of £1 for adults and 50p for children to cover costs.
This day is also the last day of the internationally acclaimed Camellia Festival.
