Gardens in the wild is a two day festival set in the unique beauty of Herefordshire’s border country

There are wonderful gardens in the south of Herefordshire and this year Gardens in the Wild is relocating to one of them – Whitfield. Whitfield is a manor house set in beautiful parkland which visitors are free to explore during the festival. Grouped around a cobbled courtyard, stalls will be selling plants, tools, statuary, obelisks, willow-work, furniture, books and other garden related products.

There will be talks and discussions each morning with Anna Pavord, Mary Keen, Tim Walker, Sarah Price and Jinny Blom.  A particular theme this year is the search for the sublime.

There is no charge for entry to the festival. Talks are £8 each and a £20 Rover ticket gets you in to all of the private gardens opening for the festival. Bookings will open early in March.

There will be walks maps and guided walks.

Delicious food-to-go from some of Herefordshire’s best artisan producers including Weobley Ash, Tom’s Felafels and Shepherds Ice cream. An all day café will be serving sandwiches, coffee, tea and cakes.

Several very special private gardens in the area will open exclusively for the festival each day.
