Gardens in the Wild

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 are open please visit the website for detailed information

There will be walks maps and guided walks.

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