Pick up a plant at gar­den

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - What’s On -

The an­nual plant fair at God­in­ton House takes place on Sun­day, May 7, from 11am.

Vis­i­tors can en­joy a stroll round God­in­ton’s 13 acres of gar­dens and pick up some in­spi­ra­tion from the Ital­ian Gar­den, Rose Gar­den, herba­ceous bor­ders and green­houses and then stock up with plants from a dozen lo­cal spe­cial­ist nurs­eries.

There will be un­usual va­ri­eties of shrubs, herbs, grasses, roses, alpines and climbers on sale.

Head gar­dener, Viv Hunt said: “With so many of the big sup­pli­ers im­port­ing huge quan­ti­ties of plants from nurs­eries abroad I’m very keen to sup­port our lo­cal grow­ers who are pro­duc­ing healthy, un­usual plants which you know will be suited to our gar­dens and cli­mate. They al­ways bring some­thing new which I can’t re­sist for the gar­dens here.”

This year there will also be Piv­ing­ton Pots, Bid­den­den Vine­yard’s cider and ap­ple juice and Wood ‘n’ Ware which is a lo­cal not-for-profit or­gan­i­sa­tion who will be sell­ing their hand made bird houses.

En­try to the plant fair and gar­den is £5 for adult and re­fresh­ments will be avail­able in the sta­bles.

The house and tea­room will open from 1pm, with the first house tour at 1.30pm. 1. Ed Sheeran - Shape of You 2. The Chainsmok­ers & Cold­play - Some­thing Just like this 3.
