Frequently Asked Questions

  • Can I bring my dog along?
    Several gardens allow dogs on leashes. They have a ‘dogs on a leash welcome’ symbol on their garden description. Please respect the gardens you visit with your fur-friend. Pick up doggy poo and always keep them on their leash.
  • Are children free?
    Yes, we encourage all children to come along and develop a love and knowledge of gardening. The price of a family ticket covers all children aged 15 and under.
  • Will the event be cancelled if the weather is bad?
    No, Creative Harvest will take place rain, hail, or shine. Please check the forecast and come prepared with umbrellas or sunscreen. Some gardens are on farms. Consider gumboots if the weather is wet.

    Some of the gardens have access to toilets. Look for the toilet symbol on their website information. There are also excellent public toilets in the towns along the route between gardens.
