To Wakehurst Place (unfortunately cancelled last year).
They are lovely gardens and should be looking really good. To book your place please ring Kate Steele on 01798 813357.
Wakehurst is part of Kew Gardens as well as National Trust. The old house has a lovely frontage and also can be visited most times. At the back there is the self service eatery and garden shop. The entry area has a cafe and a very smart, well stocked shop. The truly wonderful Seed Bank can be seen in a new construction that keeps out the rain. The visual displays are truly mind boggling in content and form. You can look inside the laboratories and see the various processes for preservation of the seeds taking place and begin to appreciate the reasons for them in detail.
