It will also be your opportunity to view and help judge the ”Victoria Park Health and Well-being Garden” Children’s Garden Design Competition!!!

AND….there will be fantastic cooking demonstrations showing how to use up those yummy potatoes! Including delicious Aloo Gobi and Cheesy Potato cakes for kiddies!
Of course we will have the huge range of seed potatoes from Pennard Plants, this year also including several good quality blight resistant varieties (if you want large quantities, you can order them in advance) and hundreds of different types of seed.

As well as heritage varieties, we’ll have organically and locally grown seeds, many unusual and fun varieties (fancy some purple carrots this year? or stripey tomatoes?) and small quantity seed packets (ideal for the frugal gardener).

You can also expect to find onion and garlic sets, fruit bushes and canes, and rhubarb crowns.

We’ll also have some excellent local suppliers of spring bulbs, fragrant and bee-friendly plants, to fill the garden with colour and beauty this year, and a range of meadow flowers suitable for the garden.
