We open our lovely Trunkwell Gardens in Beech Hill,  Berkshire during the summer  where you can meet the people we help and the horticultural therapists, and have tea and cakes of course!

In Battersea Park, London you can visit the wonderful Herb Garden, delightful Old English Garden and the Winter Garden at any time during park opening hours.
