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.
Our penultimate event is happening tomorrow at Athelhampton House between 10am-3pm. This is run by Plant Heritage and there will be plenty of different types of plants to choose from, so come along before the weather breaks!
I open up for plant browsers today- 2 days a week- onwards until the end of September.
Our NEW opening hours for this year are THURSDAY & FRIDAY each week, 10-4.
If you would like to come outside of these hours, I’d be glad to arrange a mutually convenient time- just email firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 01202695256. Evenings visitors are welcome but MUST be pre-arranged please.
We will be selling the best of our stock at lots of events this season-both locally and further afield, so plenty of opportunities to see what we can offer you!
We are looking forward to our first visit to a new venue for the Charity Plant Fairs this coming Saturday, 28th April between 1-5pm- Midney Garden near Somerton. Admission is £3 for the plant fair and £3 to the gardens and the benefiting charity for the event is 1st Somerton scout group.
Midney Garden is an RHS partner garden and well worth a visit for a pleasant afternoon. There will be about 16 nurseries selling a good variety of plants, so spoil yourselves and buy some lovely new additions for your gardens! Details below. See you there 🙂
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.
