Bishopston Garden Charity Plant sale at Room 212, Saturday 25 JuneJune 23rd, 2016
Following the success of Bishopston Open Gardens, The Bishopston Garden Society will be selling plants outside Room 212 this Saturday morning from 10am. Proceeds will go to the Bristol Refugees and Golden Hill Community Garden.
The Bishopston Garden Club once again welcomed the public to view a selection of their wonderful green spaces, on the afternoon of Sunday 19 June.
Mum, baby Henry and I enjoyed a pleasant couple of hours wondering around the local gardens. Coming straight from attending the Friends of Horfield Common picnic earlier in the day, we didn’t make it around all the local venues but were extremely impressed with those that we did.
There was something new and beautiful to discover in each garden – bee hives, chicken coops, ponds, a wormery, sculptures, afternoon tea on the lawn and of course stunning plants and enviable vegetable plots.
We enjoyed a slice of Victoria sponge, from the veranda of a construction that was really far too fancy to call a shed. As we sat, I looked around the gorgeous garden that was host to a large party of fellow visitors admiring the floral scenes, people happily chatting with cup of tea in one hand and brolly in the other, it struck me that there were few things more British. Were we going to let some unwelcome rain spoil our afternoon – never!
Funds raised from entry, plant stall and refreshments are going towards the local Golden Hill Community Garden and British Refugee Rights. Congratulations Bishopston Gardening Club, all your hard-work was well worth it.
Do get along to Room 212 this Saturday and select from some beautiful flower and vegetable plants.Back to news
