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 🙂


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  🙂
