We were thrilled to win Best in Show at the Dorset County Show in Sept 2016 in the mini show garden category with our ‘Casterbridge Cottage’ entry. It showed what a good assortment of perennials can be used to create a cottage garden and even included a cat on the cottage doorstep!

Plant Fair at Mapperton House…

This coming Sunday, 16th Sept, is the date for our last plant event of this season to be held at Mapperton House near Beaminster between 10-4. Entry is £3 and the chosen charity is Cancer Research UK-such a worthwhile charity, so come and support their vital work.

This is always a popular event which finishes the season for many of the different nurseries that will be attending.

The Sawmill Cafe will be open for lunches and snacks and the gardens are very worth visiting too. Set in a peaceful valley, the main formal garden is down some steep steps and is planted with both exotics and interesting perennials.

Lytchett Minster School, Poole….

Final Reminder…..on tomorrow and Saturday, Friday 13th & Sat.14th….the area show for Dorset and Guernsey Flower Arranging Society.

Lots of amazing arrangements to peruse, lectures and demo’s to attend, refreshments and ofcourse our PLANT STALL! We will be sited just outside the back doors that lead to the theatre and close to the refreshment area. Come and see what we have on offer.

This is our first event of the new season- it’s been a real battle so far with temperatures down to -7c and flooding, but we have a good selection of good quality perennials to choose from all at great prices even though they are about 5 weeks behind on growth.

Hope to see you there  🙂
