Home­grown plants and lots more

Yorkshire Post - YP Magazine - - Homes&garden -

WITH over 50 years’ ex­pe­ri­ence, the fam­i­lyrun gar­den cen­tre and nurs­ery Markham Grange Nurs­eries, in Don­caster, is an ex­pert in grow­ing plants and giv­ing ad­vice.

The nurs­ery grows a large amount of plants on site, in­clud­ing bed­ding and veg­etable plants all year round. By grow­ing many of its own plants, Markham Grange has cut out the mid­dle man, en­abling it to of­fer com­pet­i­tive prices.

With a fo­cus on qual­ity, value and ex­pert ad­vice, the nurs­ery is one of the lead­ing sup­pli­ers of plants, gar­den wear and gar­den fur­ni­ture in the area.

The Markham Café has in­tro­duced a new menu, packed full of great tast­ing home­made food in­clud­ing break­fasts, cakes and daily spe­cials. A Sun­day roast is served from 12.30pm on­wards on Sun­days.

You can also visit the Markham Grange Steam Mu­seum, an un­ex­pected sur­prise to those who visit. This is ded­i­cated to the restora­tion and ren­o­va­tion of sta­tion­ary and marine steam en­gines. Help­ing to pre­serve parts of Bri­tish en­gi­neer­ing his­tory, the mu­seum’s team has spent years restor­ing the 19th cen­tury en­gines back to their for­mer glory. In ad­di­tion to see­ing th­ese en­gines in full steam­ing ac­tion, the mu­seum is packed full of tech­ni­cal in­for­ma­tion and his­tory about each en­gine.

The mu­seum is free to en­ter and opens ev­ery Wed­nes­day, the first Sun­day of ev­ery month, and Bank Hol­i­days.

New for 2015, Markham Grange now has a gar­den fur­ni­ture and gift­ware shop, sell­ing a great range of gar­den and con­ser­va­tory fur­ni­ture, ac­ces­sories and gift­ware.

In the Pot­ting Shed, you can have pots and planters cus­tom made by choos­ing from a huge va­ri­ety of home grown plants. If you are more keen to learn, the team of gar­den­ing ex­perts can show you how to make your own.

Watch out for events hap­pen­ing through out the year: Trac­tion En­gine So­ci­ety Show, Bon­sai fair, Chrysan­the­mum show, craft fairs and much more. Visit the Face­book page ‘Markham Grange Nurs­ery & Steam Mu­seum’.
