Turn End Gardens 02

Spring has sprung at Turn End garden in Haddenham and so has the arrival of its 2015 Arts and Garden Events Programme.

Hosting its first Art Workshop of the season, Turn End Charitable Trust invites those interested in arts and crafts to sign up to its Leather Journals Workshop on Thursday 23rd April or Sunday 26th April from 10:00-16:00. Led by its Artist in Residence, Heather Hunter, participants will be able to make a wraparound, non-adhesive journal fashioned from sturdy leather. £50. Booking is required.

In early May, amateur gardeners will be able to enjoy a leisurely and informative walk around the garden with Jackie Hunt's Late Spring Walk (Tuesday 12th May). Jackie will introduce the garden's history and look at a selection of plants in late Spring. £10.

Those who would like learn how to make their own plants for free will be able to attend the first of its gardening workshops — Propagate your own plants on Thursday 14th May from 10:00-16:00 Horticulturalist Lindsay Engers and Jackie Hunt, Turn End's gardener, will be running this practical and informal workshop and will be introducing propagation activities that can be done during Spring. Propagation Techniques is rarely offered as a workshop, so it is advisable to book early. £50. Booking essential.

Turn End will also be open during the National Garden Scheme on Bank Holiday Monday, 4th May from 14.00-17.30 (Adults £4.00; Children free) for you to explore the late spring delights of Turn End garden. Artist in Residence, Heather Hunter, will be exhibiting her artist's books and prints, and award-winning photographer Paul Wilkinson's gallery will be open to view his stunning images.
