Only a few weeks of the season are left at York Gate Garden in Adel near Leeds before the garden closes for the year at the end of September, but those who want a memento of the popular garden can purchase from the new range of York Gate Garden products. The items, which include tea towels, mugs and tote bags, feature a pattern inspired by the garden’s Arts & Crafts style, and all profits from their sale go to Perennial.
York Gate Garden, which is owned and managed by Perennial, has enjoyed its highest ever visitor numbers this summer. Those who have not yet had a chance to visit the charming one-acre garden have until 30th September, when the garden closes for the winter.
The range of York Gate products are available from the garden’s gift shop, as well as online via the Perennial website. In addition to the products with the floral, Arts & Crafts inspired design, there is also a set of coasters depicting beautiful seasonal photographs of the garden.
Head Gardener, Ben Preston comments:
“We have had a bumper season at York Gate which was boosted by the fantastic summer weather. There is still plenty of late summer colour for visitors to enjoy and with the fair weather set to continue for the next few weeks, there is still plenty of time to make the most of a garden visit. The new York Gate products now available make a nice souvenir and equally might make a good stocking filler idea for those looking ahead to Christmas.”
Designed in the Arts & Crafts style, York Gate is regarded as one of the UK’s best small gardens, created by the Spencer family during the 20thcentury. It is designed around a series of 14 outdoor rooms, each with its own unique character, laid out on a framework of yew and beech hedges and York Stone and granite paths. For its intimate scale it packs a punch, providing visitors with plenty of practical inspiration to take home and recreate in their own gardens.
