Make a space for nature at the front of your house - take part in the Blooming Whiteway Front Garden Festival.

The festival is for everyone - young and old, skilled gardeners and those willing to learn, those of us with concrete driveways and those of us with no soil - as far as wildlife is concerned every little helps! From driveway gardens to wildlife havens, from patio pots to plants for pollinators, from bird feeders to edible beds anything goes! 

Blooming Whiteway Front Garden Festival is an annual event that celebrate's Whiteway's front garden spaces.
Whiteway's gardens come in all shapes and sizes and the estate is a stone's throw from open countryside. Through our green spaces we connect the countryside with the city of Bath and we have an amazing array of wildlife and birdlife.
