The Kitchen Garden
In Spring 2010, we developed our Kitchen Garden in nearby Windermere to supply the Beatrix Potter™ Tea Room at the Attraction with fresh produce, including seasonal salad crops, herbs, fruits and vegetables.
We use organic growing principles in both the Kitchen Garden and the Peter Rabbit™ Garden, following the guidelines provided by Garden Organic.
The Kitchen Garden boasts a polytunnel, and some sturdy rabbit-proof fencing has been erected to protect baby leaves of spinach, sorrel and winter lettuce. Our gardening team work hard to maintain our Gardens in top condition but they must be vigilant! – as Mr. McGregor himself might say…
“Don’t forget those blooming rabbits – they’ll eat your lovely veg in a moment if you let them!”
