Apley Walled Gardens Tour - Tuesday 20 August 2013

16th August 2013

The Apley Walled Gardens have recently been brought back into production for the first time in 50 years. They are now managed by our Head Gardener Phil Allen, who has started producing a large range of vegetables, many of which are unusual, old and interesting varieties.

The tour is on Tuesday 20th August 2013. Meet in the Apley Farm Shop car park at 10.30am. Pay £2 at the till. Put on wellies & coats. Divide into as few cars as possible to go to the Walled Gardens 0.9 miles away. You will return to the Farm Shop 12noon after which you may wish to have lunch in the beautiful Creamery Café with the Head Gardener.

Booking isn't vital, but it helps! Please email marketingassistant@apleyfarmshop.co.uk or call 01952 730 345
