The Exedra Garden in Spring

The Rococo Garden welcomes garden volunteers.  We currently have vacancies for new volunteers to join our existing groups on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays throughout the season.  Garden volunteers participate in a wide range of jobs, including:-

  • Border tidy and upkeep of our established ornamental mixed borders and shrubberies
  • Vegetable and fruit cultivation in our 18th century restored Kitchen Garden
  • Direct sowing of crops in the Kitchen Garden, and harvesting for use in the Garden’s Restaurant
  • Pruning of trained fruit (espaliers)
  • Heritage rose pruning

This list gives an outline of some of the jobs which our present valuable group of garden volunteers contribute.  If you are interested in joining this friendly team of volunteers in 2012, please phone the Rococo Garden for further details
