Edibleculture – Education and pricing
We want visitors to Edibleculture to feel welcome, inspired, and educated so don’t expect salesmen trying to push through a sale. As plants people we would rather explain to our visitors the benefit you will get from a certain species or variety and whether it is suitable for you and your garden, rather than sell you something that isn’t suitable.

This will also be demonstrated through our display gardens and courses ranging in subjects such as fruit tree pruning, edible gardening and propagation. More…
