Patrick’s Patch – a learning garden in Beaulieu.

Course - Growing Flowers for Cutting

Learning Garden

Patrick’s Patch is a free to enter inspiring and productive garden that we have built adjacent to Fairweather’s in Beaulieu High Street. Year-round we grow a wide range of vegetables, fruit, herbs and cut flowers that are used in Steff’s Kitchen.

Our Head Gardener Rachel is supported by a loyal group of garden volunteers and Primary school children who regularly visit to learn gardening skills and understand where our food comes from. If you would like to arrange a Gardening Club Tour, or a hands-on Primary School visit then please contact Lisa on 01590 614945.

“I love coming to the Patch. It’s never boring and really gives me inspiration and enthusiasm for my own projects at home” – Tracy Price

National Gardens SchemeWe are proud to be collecting entry donations for the  NGS in support of a wide range of invaluable charities. If you enjoyed your visit please consider donating.

A visit to Patrick’s Patch can provide ideas and tips for your own home, or alternatively just a tranquil place to wander and relax.

“My partner and I discovered Patrick’s Patch completely by chance today.  I just wanted to say what a joy it was to discover this gem of a place.  I think it was one of the most inspiring and uplifting projects I’ve come across in a long time.  What a wonder place with such incredible goals.  I was genuinely blown away – and inspired to try and bring this concept to my own local community” – Ms D Moore
