Flower Shows & Events 2020

Due to the Corona virus outbreak all of the flower shows have been cancelled until 30th June.  It would be wonderful if the RHS Tatton Park Flower Show can still go ahead but at this stage we just don’t know.

In the meantime I’ll be using the extra time at the nursery this summer to keep growing truly hardy perennials and develop ideas for some stunning displays at the 2021 flower shows.

RHS Shows & Plant Fairs

RHS Malvern Spring Festival:     Cancelled

RHS Chatsworth Flower Show:   Cancelled

RHS Flower Show Tatton Park:   Wed 22 July - Sun 26 July

Spring Fling

Artists and Craftsmen across Dumfries & Galloway would have been opening their studios and workshops to visitors from Saturday 23rd to Monday 25th May and we usually join in.

You won't find us listed in the Spring Fling guide but the nursery will be open Saturday to Monday from 10am to 4pm so if you are in the area why not call in.

Usually we hold a fundraising event for MacMillan Cancer Support: tea, coffee and delicious home-made cakes will be on sale all weekend with all proceeds going to this wonderful charity.  In 2019, thanks to the support of our fantastic customers we raised £800! Sadly we’ve decided that we will be unable to offer refreshments this year but please visit us anyway, there is plenty of space here for social distancing and if you would like to make a donation to MacMillan Cancer Support that would be wonderful.

You can find us at a variety of events in the North of England and Southern Scotland.
