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.


Our Philosophy

Unlike our Victorian counterparts we are committed to organic gardening. Using the best practices from their days (e.g. lots of horse manure) and knowledge gleaned from the Ryton organic garden we set to tame our Warwickshire clay. We are committed to:

  • Sustainability
  • Growing Heritage Varieties
  • Plant sharing
  • Experimenting with epicurean and exotic crops
  • Sharing the fresh produce
  • Donating to charitable causes.

We open the garden under the National Garden Scheme Yellow Book programme and to organised parties. If you are interested in a tour then contact us.
