Stephanie's Kitchen Garden Diary

Designed by RHS Chelsea Flower Show gold medal winner Tom Hoblyn for Harrod Horticultural MD Stephanie Harrod back in 2005. Stephanie’s Kitchen Garden was set up primarily to trial various methods of growing fruit and vegetables and to share the knowledge gained with our customers. It has also given us the opportunity to develop and manufacture products to enable us to successfully grow flavour packed fruit and vegetables.
