EAT, GROW, LOVE

We’ve had a first peep at what lies beyond the garden walls at Wynyard. And it’s wow – whether your fingers are green are not

Like your gin with a sprig of lavender? Beetroot with your vodka? Or just the perkiness of freshly muddled mint sprigs in a mojito?

If you do, then saunter over to a place of pleasure – The Gin Garden. It knocks the spots off a crop of cabbages – and gives a whole new meaning to the edible garden.

This Friday (September 16) The Gin Garden at Wynyard sets up as one of the first workshops in The Potting Shed. The word ‘shed’ does it an injustice. It forms part of The Glasshouse, within the restored walled kitchen gardens on the Wynyard Hall estate.

Gardens which once supplied the grand hall’s kitchens have been re-planted and revived to grow produce for the estate and a new generation of guests – among them the gin-loving cocktail crowd.

The Potting Shed will be home to an array of courses and classes which reflect what’s going on in the ground outside. The edible garden will be brought inside to provide supplies for events such as a pumpkin floristry workshop, edible gardening course and that tasty Gin Garden workshop.

The Potting Shed will certainly appeal to the craft-minded and green-fingered. Seasonal courses such as wreath-making, candle-making and shabby-chic furniture workshops promise to scratch the creative itch.

Add to these lots of children’s workshops throughout the seasons – not to mention a Magic Trail, Christmas Craft Barn and the place becomes a not-so secret garden, full of outdoorsy pleasures.

The Potting Shed is available for private functions and it also houses a range of plants to buy and stylish homeware gifts, carefully sourced from across the globe.
