Waltham Place is currently preparing for the new season.
As Spring approaches, the Garden and Farm teams are hard at work preparing the beds and fields for the Spring plantings. This year we will be holding a number of Special Interest Days to celebrate the Flora and Fauna, Food and Philosophy of Waltham Place. We hope you will join us in 2013.
Waltham Place Gardens are open from May 21st 2013- September 27th 2013.Visits by appointment only. Please see Plan your visit for further details.
If you would like to visit before May please see What’s On for our seasonal walks and courses.
Waltham Place offers you an experience of a biodynamic and organic farm and gardens. We take garden tours, school visits, seasonal walks and training courses. We have a small farm shop with home grown produce for sale.
Welcome to Waltham Place. As we invite you to explore its many different facets with us, we ask that you shift your paradigms; that you look at the gardens with a different eye, to be accepting of the less formal, less tidy look. I am a gardener of place, who seeks to work with the nature of the place, adapting and evolving to its ecology rather than producing a decorated garden. Natural gardening is all about your relationship with the garden and its evolution, using your knowledge of plant systems and families. We are staunch believers in all aspects of organic husbandry and in the holistic management of the estate. We seek to combine forces with nature rather than fighting against it, and to explore the boundaries between garden and nature. In doing so, we have created a haven to an abundance of insect and animal life, fungi and indigenous flora. This is our legacy, our investment in the future.
