Ryton Gardens

Ryton Gardens is in the heart of England, near Coventry, and comprises 10 acres brimming with wildlife, plants, flowers and fruit and vegetables – all grown organically.

It’s home to Garden Organic, the UK’s leading organic growing charity, which has been at the forefront of the organic horticulture movement for more than 50 years. Dedicated to promoting organic gardening in homes, communities and schools, it aims to get more people growing in the most sustainable way.

Ryton Gardens has its own fruit gardens and orchards, where produce can be picked and eaten depending on the season. It has individually themed gardens, including the Cook’s Garden. At Ryton Gardens you can also discover the history of vegetables through the fun and interactive Vegetable Kingdom, and learn too about all aspects of organic gardening.

In addition, Ryton Gardens is home to Garden Organic’s pioneering Heritage Seed Library (HSL). Established in 1978, the HSL aims to conserve and make available vegetable varieties that are not widely accessible and has over 800 different seed varieties. HSL membership gives access annually to up to six varieties from the HSL catalogue, which features around 200 of the 800 varieties in the collection. From 2013 this includes exotic crop varieties gathered in through the Sowing New Seeds project. Find out more about HSL here.

  1. Lynne Shepherdson says:
    Not Quite All it WasRyton is still appealing to those with an interest in organic gardening. It is a source of ideas you can try at home in your own garden and a wander around it on a sunny day is pleasant and informative. However, it seems undermaintained compared to how it was a few years ago, gradually getting weedy at the edges and with very little in the way of new developments. The cafe, however, is very good - excellent freshly cooked food with an emphasis on the organic in an informal setting, including the option to eat outside. One of the only places worth eating at in Coventry (wait, drat! It isn't in Coventry...)
