Insole Court's Informal Gardeners' Question Time & Plant Fair

Where: Stable Yard
When: Saturday 6th July - 10am – 4pm

We are delighted to present a verdant & vibrant day packed with plants and horticultural expertise!

We will have the usual monthly plant fair in the Stable Yard with our regular group of sellers, plus some exciting new ones too. You will be able to purchase a cottage flower posy, try your hand at creating a flower corsage and enjoy a coffee while the children explore botany in our activity room. You can join a guided tree walk around the grounds and then ask our very own expert Gardeners' Question Time panel all those awkward questions about plants and gardens that have been troubling you!

Don’t forget to come and see us at the Insole Court Volunteer Gardner’s stall to find out all about our exciting plans for the gardens and for the chance to win a pot of delicious honey created by our very special resident bees!
