Guided Tour

Friday 20 September, 2pm

Our botanist Barry Clarke is the National Plant Collection holder of Rubus. He will show you this brand-new collection at the Gardens. See a selection of the 250 species and learn more about this unusual collection. Some are known for their fruits, while others have ornamental features clothed with decorative colourful leaves and stems. From the more well-known brambles such as blackberry and raspberry, to Japanese wineberry and salmonberry there are lots to see.

The guided tour will be around 1 ½ hours, please wear suitable footwear for the outside as the tour will take you to Woods of the World.

After the tour sample some of the delights we have produced from items harvested.
