Jason Goodwin and Simon Tiffin set up G&T Garden Tours to share their enthusiasm for the gardens and landscapes of Dorset and Somerset.
Simon and Jason are dedicated to introducing guests to the stunning landscapes, fabulous food and produce of this historic and beautiful region of England.
Twice a year, with groups limited to no more than 15 people, G&T provides exclusive access to gardens that are not usually open the public. G&T also hosts incredible guest speakers, such as Anna Pavord talking about tulips, or photographer Howard Sooley on how to get the most from your garden photography.
In May 2023, shortly before the Chelsea Flower Show, Jason and Simon will escort a limited number of guests on an unforgettable tour that includes not only the grounds of the grand houses, but also some of the most spectacular private gardens in the West Country.
Based in a historic manor house on the Jurassic Coast, guests will enjoy splendid accommodation, excellent food – and an unforgettable horticultural experience.
Chilcombe is one of my favourite places and I truly love the garden.
No occupation is so delightful to me as the culture of the earth, and no culture comparable to that of the garden.
The lure of the garden is dreamlike, primarily about things just beyond our grasp.
My garden philosophy is simple: you should always plant what you like even if nobody else does.
Whenever I arrive in my garden, I Make The Tour. Is this a personal idiosyncrasy, or do all good gardeners do it?
