The Cutting Garden

We are very fortunate to have a cutting garden in the walled kitchen garden at Renishaw Hall. It is a private, peaceful part of the Estate with three Victorian glasshouses, a small orchard and stone out-buildings.

In our first year we harvested armfuls of garden gathered flowers, fragrant herbs, and foliage. We filled wheelbarrows and spent summer afternoons in the courtyard making hand-ties for our shop customers and arrangements for the Hall. We like our flowers to be natural, seasonal and to be as sustainable as possible and growing flowers in a cutting garden attracts bees, butterflies, birds and all sorts of insects. The flowers are as fresh as they can be and this feels like floristry should be in an ideal world.

This year we will be welcoming people back to the Victorian Glasshouse for flower workshops of the wild/natural/seasonal kind. We will appreciate it more than ever and look forward to sharing it with you.
