Ellenthorpe – a wildlife demonstrator garden

Ellenthorpe (wild garden, Underhill entrance) Saturday 15 & Sunday 16 June 

The Telfers’ ‘field’ at Ellenthorpe – the wild part of the garden – will be open as a wildlife demonstrator garden all day on 15 & 16 June as part of the Garden Festival, in aid of Hspiscare.

With the Wotton Brook running through, its mature trees, exciting pathways through the undergrowth, its pond, meadow and many perch points for people, this peaceful garden is a haven for wildlife. Come along and enjoy this special place, and find out more about gardening for wildlife. There will be a number of stalls and activities taking place over the two days.
