There are lots of plants for sale at Church Farm in Creamery Lane. Some are on the verge at the house gable, but also lots are along the back of the house. There are kitchen garden plants, wild flowers, herbaceous plants, climbers and shrubs. I have potted on tomato plants left over from Open Gardens so they just need to be put in a sunny spot and watered.

If no one is about just put what you think is a fair price in the tin under the pallet. Unfortunately sales have been much slower than last year, we have so far just raised £18.50 to be split between the Carnival & Rec Committee and the Horticulture Soc. (This time last year we had raised some £160. It may be people are not noticing the plants behind the house.)

Money from further sales will go to support the Parish Council garden off Pump Hill. Everything must go.
