The Chiswick House Kitchen Garden has an open day on Sunday 21 September between 1pm and 5pm, before closing to the public for renovation. Visitors will be able to see late-summer colour in the cutting bed, a collection of different types of pumpkins and squashes, and there will be stalls and local honey, refreshments, surplus plants and produce on sale. Next year the Kitchen Garden woodland will be cleared and an orchard planted in the northern garden. A central path will be laid down in the southern and northern gardens. Heritage fruit trees will be planted along the axis and the walls will be repaired prior to planting wall fruit.
