Save the date – HGF 2022 – 11th & 12th June

EXHIBITORS – Booking for 2022 is open!

Head over to our BOOKING A SPACE page to be part of Herefordshire’s biggest weekend Garden Festival. A summer bounty of the sustainable and the eclectic, crafted and grown, held in the glorious gardens and grounds of Hellens Manor.

Our 2021 Festival was truly amazing!

We were so delighted to shake off the Covid blues, and hold our unique Festival as a ‘feet through the gate’ event once again. We welcomed 3,000 visitors over the two days, to enjoy a huge array of local exhibitors, plant growers, musicians, talks and forums, creative family activities, sculpture trail, local food and drink, and so much more.

Hellens gardens, meadow and grounds thrummed with a diversity of people and activities, warmed by beautiful summer sunshine.

We shared our message of ‘Together, We are the Seeds of Change’, with many well attended talks and forums including; Seeding Change in our Garden, Foraging for Everyone, Make Do and Mend, Preserving the Harvest, and Zero Carbon Herefordshire.

Working together, even in the smallest of ways, we can find solidarity and solutions to sustain ourselves, all communities and our precious planet. We celebrate the fact that our Festival is leading the way in exploring how we can create a sustainable and greener approach for the benefit of all of us and our Earth.

HGF 2021 raised £13,500 for St Michael’s Hospice and £4,500 for Back to the Wild CIC.

In the Get Growing Tent, 2021 well known gardeners, Hannah Genders, Tamsin Westhorpe, Terry Walton and John Cunningham, give advice and answer questions about garden problems.

‘Seeding Change in your Garden’

Topics from pruning to how to deal with pests and diseases in an organic way are covered in an entertaining way.
Sit back and relax with a cup of tea and a notepad to jot down any tips!
