Tickets: £105 per person, including morning coffee, garden tours, three course lunch with wine and coffee and a charitable donation.

This year’s garden visit starts with coffee at Tim & Stefa Hart’s garden at the Old Hall in Market Overton at 10.00am. We will then make the short drive to Chapel Farm, just outside Cottesmore. Chapel Farm, the home of James and Carina Hanbury, has recently been largely rebuilt and Tom Stuart-Smith called in to redesign the garden in 2019. Tom has won many Chelsea medals and designed many great gardens, often using a palette of plants quite different from the standard. This is a wonderful opportunity to see how a restrained collection of flowers and grasses can blend into a wonderfully harmonious whole. We will then make our way to Hambleton Hall arriving at noon with a visit to the kitchen garden followed by lunch. Following lunch there will be plenty of time to look at the Hambleton Garden with head gardener Rob Skinner.
