Tysoe Walled Kitchen Garden

Welcome to the Tysoe Walled Kitchen Garden website! We are committed to organic gardening. Using the best practices from the Victorian days (i.e. lots of horse manure) and knowledge gleaned from the Ryton Organic Gardens we have set out to tame our Warwickshire clay. It’s all about sustainability, so as well as organic gardening, we’re always looking to better ways to work with our environment.

On this site you can find out about our history and the projects we are working on. You can come visit the garden and learn about organic gardening. Follow our blog to see what’s on our mind in the garden this month.

For the first 8 years all the work was carried out by just the two of us. Now we have help and are passing on our knowledge to students on the WRAGS (Work and Retrain As a Gardener Scheme).

We also find time to be involved with the WOT2Grow Community Orchard in Tysoe and have planted a 3 acre wood close to Tysoe, just over the border in Oxfordshire with a grant from the Woodland Trust.

Open Garden 2019

Saturday was very warm and with 10 gardens to visit our elderflower cordial was welcomed by many.

After working hard all week we were pleased with the results and the many wonderful comments made it all worthwhile.

The clematis, on an arch by the new patio, came into flower perfectly on time giving a wonderful display, Clematis Duchess of Edinburgh looking almost like a rose deceived many visitors and sunset a wonderful dark pink flower.

Sown seeds, self sown seedlings, division, cuttings many of the ways I try and propagate plants in the garden which give me lots of new plants to sell for charity. This weekend we raised £150 for the National Garden Scheme charity.
