The Gardens advise… “Our intention is that the gardens remain open to the public for as much of the year as possible. However, if conditions become very wet or frosty we may have to close the gardens in order to preserve the integrity of the ground and lawn under foot. Please contact us prior to visiting between the months of November and March.”

Following our latest NewsList mailing; we received an e-mail from a local (to Yalding) resident; saddened by what she sees as our negative comments towards the Yalding Gardens and their owners and concerned that we are not being supportive of same.  Our correspondent also mentioned that she had read a number of our earlier emails; which caused similar upset.

The KM also states that there is a complete programme of summer activities, especially with children in mind. Starting on Monday, July 26 with a series of bug hunts in the gardens.

One thing that appears to  presently be missing from the Gardens, is any kind of overview of the gardens’ layout, or a site guide. Maybe something that the new operators haven’t got around to doing yet; but -  if conversations overheard in the Gardens are anything to go by – a plan of the Gardens would be of assistance.

It may not be ‘official’ and it is certainly not professional; but we are happy to make our own sketch plan of the Gardens available for download as a PDF; by either clicking the image below, or via our Garden Plans page.
