News from Wyken
The Leaping Hare Country Store
It’s the time of year when gardens break free and go wild. To keep the garden at Wyken in check we have discovered Niwaki tools from Japan. Our head gardener Pip Green swears by them. Now available in our shop.
Massive shoot growth took place in June so Charles and his team are busy separating and thinning vine shoots to allow air and light to the leaf canopy. The vines are flowering now and, fingers crossed, it looks like a another good year.
Wyken Farmers’ Market
We are all trying to reduce packaging, food miles and all waste. The farmers’ market goes a long way towards those aims. The coffee grounds in the Bullpen in the market go onto the compost heap along with the biodegradable coffee cups! Our weekly Farmers’ Market is on Saturdays 9am – 1pm.
Shocking Pink! Our highly anticipated 2018 Wyken Pink Rosé is here!
Come and try it in our Leaping Hare Vineyard Restaurant or pick up a bottle to take home from our shop.
Made from our Triomphe d’Alsace & Léon Millot grapes. These ancient grape varieties have red juice hence its bold, dark pink colour.
It’s subtle raspberry & summer fruit flavours make it an ideal summer wine.
Wyken Hall Gardens
Our gardens are now open daily from 2-6pm EXCEPT Saturdays when they are closed to the public.
We are pleased to be a Royal Horticultural Society Partner Garden as well as one of Garden News’ Top 100 Gardens in the UK.
Last year Pip Green took over as Head Gardener, returning to her home ground in Suffolk after a 20-year stint in gardens on the west coast of America. Joining her in the garden is Alex Fricker, fresh from Otley College.
