  •   If you are at all tempted by this tour do it. It was so interesting and fun. We saw (and tasted!) so many different things. There are lots of ideas you can apply in your own garden, or that would be interesting even you don’t have a garden. And Rob is a great host, such a nice chap. Highly recommend.

      Rob was just as delightful in the flesh as on telly where I?d seen him first.
    I was the only one on the tour today. He is full of information and happy to share his experiences. I was given loads of cuttings to get me off to a flying start- it feels like new beginnings for me. I?ll be back in a sunnier season. Thanks, Becca

      Rob's knowledge and passion is reflected in his wonderful Garden and it's contagious. We went in the middle of winter and even so the garden was a testament to his hard work and passion. Recommend it to anyone interested in developing a Forest Garden.

      Rob has made a tremendous effort over the years to create a forest garden from the ground up with the help of a single book and stores of patience. He knows his garden inside out, shares his experience earnestly - success and failures - and gave us a glimpse at his peculiar way of living. Our (young) kids were very interested in the geese and ducklings, less in plants, but that won’t be blamed on the attraction! When we visited a lot of berries and plants were not yet ripe so I guess there may be even better times to visit. A good visit overall, and we loved the flowered garlic so much we could have eaten a season’s worth in an afternoon. Thanks Rob.

      This was a great experience amazing place and Rob was very knowledgeable and friendly.
    I'm a beginner gardner and learnt a lot about which plants compliment other plants and lots of tips. I'd highly recommend and it's a lovely spot in the countryside.

      Had the most wondrous visit to Robs garden and our personal tour with Rob, who is so incredibly knowledgeable, and so good at explaining everything, was so interesting and inspiring. He answered every question we had, which only led onto more, due to his amazing knowledge and enthusiasm.
    We are definitely going back for several more visits to see the garden in different seasons .
    Couldn’t recommend this visit more highly .
    Additionally the gardens are suitable for all ages from children upwards. My 87 year old Nan loved the tour just as much as we all did !

  •   Rob's knowledge on forest garden is amazing. He is very kind and willing to share his knowledge happily. He generously shared many samples from his garden for us to try planting in our gardens, sensing our avid interest. Also, he continued the tour for longer than the advertised time as we had many questions. We will be definitely coming back with some more of our friends. Thank you Rob for a wonderful time. You give us hope that in this world, one doesn't have to be consumeristic to thrive.

      Thoroughly enjoyed our experience with Rob. Arrangements for meeting up went smoothly. Rob was passionate about the topic and very engaging with our whole group.

    He went out of his way to tailor the day to our interests and also, the abilities of all the group (one person in the group having reduced mobility).

    We would highly recommend this experience - take a notebook as there is so much info. We hope to repeat it again at some time.

      I have just spent 2+ hours immersed in Rob’s knowledge and passion for his amazing forest garden. Curious to see plants, shrubs and trees from all over the world, which yield their flavours and scents. And bees. And geese. And ducks. And to see how Rob lives a unique lifestyle off his land. Now have serious land envy. A wonderful experience.
