Country Gardener Great Days Out

Country Gardener magazine and TV gardener and author Toby Buckland have joined together to offer readers the chance to join us at exclusive gardening days out this summer at the wonderful setting of Powderham Castle in Devon.

Each day will be hosted by Toby at his new Plant Centre at Powderham and will have a separate popular gardening theme for each day out.

They include a ‘Masterclass’ by Toby, an exclusive visit to his nursery, Victorian greenhouse and behind-the-scenes trial beds; entrance and an escorted guide to Powderham Castle; lunch at Powderham Castle and the chance to spend some time back at the Plant Centre, Country Store and Farm Shop.
