Pashley Manor Gardens – Kitchen Garden Week
Tuesday, July 7, 2015 @ 11:00 am - 5:00 pm
The current Kitchen Garden, designed and planted in 1990, is a re-creation of how the long –lost Victorian potager might have been. In July the Kitchen Garden, hidden within its soft pink brick walls, is full of fresh produce and flowers that supply the café and feed the house. Espaliered pear trees and vine arches welcome you to the Kitchen Garden; scented and colourful sweet peas grown on tall bamboo pyramids flourish at each corner. Many different types of lettuce and salad jostle for space with parsley, chives, coriander and other herbs, while artichokes and early courgettes, peas, beans and beetroot cohabit with soft fruits which make visitors gasp with envy.
For these five days there will the chance to talk to the Kitchen Gardener and ask questions and advice; a focus on how the produce from the garden is used in the café and an emphasis on local produce – including the local honey and homemade chutney sold in the gift shop.
