Apley Plant Centre, Celebrating the Garden 2-3 July weekend

Apley Plant Centre – Herbal workshop in our Corn Loft Conference Centre

The Apley Plant Centre held its herbal workshop for 25 in our Corn Loft Conference Room this morning with lunch, then dessert canapés served up in the plant centre. They’re Celebrating the Summer over the weekend 2-3 July. Tom & Melanie sent me this summary:

“Midsummer in the garden provides a plentiful supply of floral interest. As summer progresses more & more plants come into flower. Just some of our plant lines available will be fashionable Dahlias in a range of eye catching colours, Rudbeckia varieties abundant with continual flower, Achilleas provide an artist’s palette of colour & a superb Salvia Collection, plus many more seasonal lines & interesting finds for the garden.

There is so much in the garden this month, so we would like to celebrate all the floral explosions. If you are mad about plants & your garden we would love to see your pictures. Send photos in via our Facebook page –  or bring into the plant centre – of your garden or favourite plant & write down your reasons why you love it. All entries need to have reached us by 5pm on the 31st July 2016 & the winner will be advised on the 3rd August 2016. Apley Plant Centre staff will choose the winner based on why you love your garden or particular plant. The winner will receive  2 tickets to The Shrewsbury Flower Show (12th/13th August 2016) where they will be warmly welcomed onto the Apley Plant Centre stand.”

We have our June craft fair tomorrow 10-4pm in the Old Dairy in our pretty courtyard, coinciding Fathers’ Day. If you’ve still not found that perfect Fathers’ Day pressie, pick up an Apley Fathers’ Day hamper or drop into one of our courtyard shops for ideas. Annie’s Reiki Centre is selling fingerprint jewellery including very suitable Fathers’ Day keyrings.

I dropped into Apley Walled Garden this evening – the lettuces have bolted in this very hot & wet weather we’ve had – such a shame but I salvaged some. Lots to do, but lots coming through too. Grass & weeds shooting up everywhere outside the walls, as they always do at this time of year. Still looking good after Sunday’s church fundraising Queen’s tea party. More on that tomorrow.
