The gardens came into being about 40 years ago in the derelict kitchen gardens of Staplehurst Manor. The original concept was to show both visitors and customers how herbs and aromatic plants could be integrated into their gardens and borders as well as in a more formal herb garden. This ethos holds as true today as it did in the beginning.
We garden organically and as a result the gardens enjoy a natural balance and are full of wildlife. If you sit quietly you may spot some of the regular visitors from stoats and badgers to the myriad of insects and birds that fill the gardens with movement and sound.
