The forest garden tour was a truly magical experience. Rob is lovely, and showed us all around his fantastic home and talked us through his decision making process and how... read more the plantings work well together.

I think everyone would benefit from a trip to the forest garden, and I cannot recommend enough!

Really great tour! Rob was friendly and engaging as well as providing great information on how he plants in the agroforest style as well as advice for much smaller gardens.... read more He made sure that all our questions were answered and that we got to see the parts of his garden tha we were most interested in. This evening our new cuttings have been planted and duck eggs eaten! We will definitely be back to see the garden in a different season.
This experience was phenomenal! We learned so much about local ecosystems, companion planting, and forest gardening at Rob's Forest Garden. I would highly recommend this for anyone looking to learn... read more about plants, gardening, or just hoping to experience some of the Somerset countryside. I am very likely to book this again in the future during a different month so I can experience the garden at a different time of year.
For someone interested in gardening for food, this was such a joy! We had an amazing time touring Rob’s garden with him explaining everything.

So glad we made time to visit Rob and his garden - such an inspiring tour if you are interested in doing something even remotely similar, even in an urban... read more setting. He has such a depth of knowledge but was so willing to share this with almost a complete lack of ego, so everyone felt really comfortable asking questions.
