Due to the current outbreak of Covid-19, we have collectively made the decision to cancel all of our children’s activities until the end of August. You will be issued a full refund in line with Eventbrite’s refund policy, which is 7 working days. We hope that you agree with and understand our decision and apologise for any inconvenience which this may have caused.
Summer baskets filled with an array of bedding plants such as geraniums, petunias and begonias etc bring colour and interest to any garden. Once you have planted up/ purchased your baskets you will want to enjoy them throughout the season and extend their lifespan for as long as possible. With just a little bit of regular maintenance you can ensure that your displays are the envy of all the neighbours!
We meet on a monthly basis in the restaurant at Poplar Nurseries and have a guest speaker at each meeting.
We also have 4 or 5 one day trips as well as a 5 day holiday each year for visiting various gardens.
