About the event

Come and visit Caversham Court Gardens by the River Thames and buy very reasonably priced plants and plant supports whilst learning about bee-friendly and wildlife gardening and all kinds of wildlife. We have vegetable and ornamental plants grown by charitable organisations, and a range of beanpoles, peasticks and plant supports to grow them up. Our plant supports come from locally managed coppiced woodland and your purchase helps maintain this traditional technique.

There are a range of activities all day including activities for children and demonstrations of products using this source of traditionally managed timber. Other stalls include FairTrade products, home made cakes and jams, RSPB making bird boxes, bird tables and hedgehog homes from timber offcuts as well as bird food and BBOWT sales and guidance on wildlife conservation.

The garden kiosk is open for light refreshments
