Good To Grow2pm - 4pm Have you ever wanted to grow your own cut flowers? We are developing a cutting patch in the Community Garden, and this is your chance to help plant it up. We have been busy sowing seeds over the last few months, and our seedlings are now ready to plant out. Drop into the garden and help the team to do some planting, while learning about which flowers are good to grow for cutting. You will also have the chance to buy some of our spare seedlings to get your own cutting patch started.

Secret Garden and Palace ExplorersHalf Term Fun! From Saturday 25 May - Sunday 2 June Take a deeper look into the mysterious world of the Palace gardens- what will you find? Hear? See? Smell? There’s a pack of fun activities to enjoy, but be quick, packs are limited!
Heroes and Villains of Olde EnglandJoin the Yarnsmith of Somerset to hear tales of days gone by; when Wells was a magical place and the springs within The Bishop’s Palace were a place of pilgrimage and wonder; where heroes like Robin Hood, King Arthur and fearless Saints inspired the town folk. Yet every hero must have an enemy, be it bad King John or even the Devil himself, and all will make an appearance in the Yarnsmith’s storytelling tent.
Sow and GrowCome along to our Community Garden and create your perfect salad, then sow the seeds into a pot to take home. Your salad should be ready to eat by the summer holidays, so why not make it into a picnic to enjoy in our arboretum?
