Description

Our Organic Garden is open to visitors. It’s six and a half acres of ornamental and edible plants in a seasonal patchwork has been constantly evolving since we started more than 18 years ago

Yeo Valley Organic Garden, 6.5 acres of Organic goodness!
The six and a half acre Yeo Valley Organic garden aims to demonstrate that it is possible to garden 100% organically (we are certified by the Soil Association) and still retain a strong sense of design, colour and fun.  
 
We have an extensive compost area which is the beating heart of the garden, as well as refraining from using any chemical pesticides or fertilisers anywhere. 
 
The whole garden puts nature first and aims to encourage biodiversity through providing habitats and careful planting schemes.  We need birds, insects and small animals to eat the bugs that could harm our plants and vegetables, and we want to protect the landscape (and everything that lives in it) for generations to come. 
 
The centre piece is a purple glasshouse set within a formal design, framed by hedges and pleached Malus “Red Sentinel”. There are several formal spaces with defined colour schemes. The more informal parts of the garden retain their relaxed contemporary feel with  perennial and annual wild-flower meadows, a birch grove and streamside garden.  
 
In spring the woodland is filled with snowdrops, wood anemones, primroses and bluebells with hundreds of tulips giving colour throughout the garden.  In summer the meadows and gravel garden provide the focus. The gravel garden is filled with colour, shape and movement achieved by bold and imaginative repeat planting. Autumnal fireworks are provided by late perennials, dahlias and grasses. Grasses are used extensively to reflect the surrounding landscape and link the garden to the Mendips to the south and Blagdon Lake to the north.
