Apley Walled Garden’s first rhubarb

20170303_081807Apley Walled Garden’s first rhubarb of 2017 is now in Apley Farm Shop. It’s fresh, very local, seasonal & you can meet our Head Gardener Phil who grows it & hear about his bio-ethical gardening methods. Catch him early morning when he’s at the farm shop.

Stuck for ideas on what to actually do with the rhubarb ? Try making rhubarb & ginger tea, crumble or fool with it. Cake of the Week from the Apley Bakery is Rhubarb Crumble cake – yum ! Perhaps try it yourself at home & enter it into the Apley Bake Off on Sun 28 May ?

Phil gave a talk last night to a gardening society. Just call us on 07739 320 314 or 01952 581 002 if you would like Phil, Lord Hamilton (or me) to speak to your group. Email us by clicking HERE. Then follow it up with a guided tour of the garden & lunch in the Creamery (made using the garden’s produce whenever possible), for the complete Apley experience ! Click HERE to book your tour.

Hear Phil speak on BBC Radio Shropshire‘s Gardeners’ Question Time with Paul Shuttleworth, 12-1pm this Sunday 12 March.
