    We went there in June. It was beautiful. We had a good lunch and there is a really good plant sales area.

  • Hi.

    We visited Forde Abbey gardens a few years ago when on holiday in that area. I agree it is a lovely place, and I seem to remember it had a wonderful veg garden.The plant certre had some very reasonably priced plants. Well worth a visit.

  • Ford Abbey gardens are lovely.  We went there about 3 years ago.  Got some fab seeds from some annual flowers they grow - a bit like cistus - lovely creamy petals and reddy brown centres about 2ft - 2ft6in high.  They are lovely and I resow from my own seeds every year but cant remember what they are called.  I just call them my Ford Abbey flowers.
