The historic market town of Tonbridge sits in an ancient landscape where the rolling hills are clothed with woods and fields. The river Medway bubbles through the town, and pretty villages, hop farms and orchards dot the surrounding landscape.
If you want to bring a little of the beauty, history and abundance of this idyllic Kent location into your Tonbridge garden, here are some tips.
And if you need a Tonbridge gardener to help you make the most of your garden, give Full Potential and Landscaping Services a call. Our specialist gardeners have the local knowledge to bring your dream garden to life.
You might be inspired by some of the glorious gardens you can visit in and around Tonbridge. Penshurst Place features 11 acres of Elizabethan walled gardens divided into 'rooms', each planted to give a succession of colour over the seasons. Ightham Mote is another sublime place to visit with its moated manor surrounded by lawns, borders, orchards and lakes. Both these gardens will offer plenty of inspiration for your own plot.
If you are looking for inspiration for your Tonbridge garden, you might want to browse the two local nurseries for ideas and to find unusual plants that will thrive in your plot.
Payne’s Nurseries offer herbaceous perennials, herbs, veg plants, lavender, hanging baskets, seasonal bedding, strawberry plants and fruit bushes.
Rapkyns Nursery specialises in hardy perennials, shrubs and climbers offering many unusual varieties you won’t find in garden centre chains.
Both Payne’s and Rapkyns have stalls at the Tonbridge Farmer’s Market.
With its mild climate and fertile soil, this part of Kent has plenty of choice when it comes to local food. Tonbridge Farmers Market is the largest in Kent and regularly has over 50 stalls that sell local produce such as fruit and vegetables, local meat, honey and other specialities.
You might be inspired to plant your own kitchen garden, or perhaps just a few pots of strawberries and herbs.
