Hestercombe's gardens are now open for visits 7 days a week ~ but you must book a ticket online before you travel. Read our updated opening information
Readers, I am after your ideas and thoughts.
As you may know we run several half day courses through the year- apple pruning/rose pruning/ seed sowing/cuttings/dry stone walling and charcoal burning etc.
What I would like to know from you is, are we missing anything?
Is there something horticultural that you wish we could explain to you?
Would you like to see us offer more historic tours/talks of the garden?
Would you like to know more about Jekylls planting plans or the ideas behind the landscape garden?
Are there specific subjects that you need more knowledge on or would you like question and answer sessions?
If you have any bright ideas please email me on
Please accept apologies in advance- if I get a lot of response from this it is unlikely that I will have time to email you back!
