Fern Cottage is situated in Steeton in the Aire Valley, West Yorkshire
We are testing organic practice and commonly held beliefs, for their usefulness here at Fern Cottage
Come and volunteer for one of our Community Gardening projects. They are suitable for both beginners and the more experienced gardener. We aim to teach new skills and to provide you with the confidence to learn through doing.
We can come and demonstrate horticultural techniques for groups or indeed for keen amateurs in their own gardens
Plant of the month
We provide solutions to gardening problems through our consultation sessions and explain the 'how and why' of what we recommend, we don't just provide a list of 'what to do'. A tailor made report covers a suggested plant list and all the recommendations from our consultation. It also takes into account the varied soil types and microclimates within our region
We aim to balance your ambitions for your garden with the reality of your skills and available time for any new developments or maintenance. We also offer ideas for re-designs to enable you to develop your own space without the expense of a designer or detailed planting plans
