                                     WELCOME TO THE NEW YEAR 2024

 We’re back and ready to begin a brand new year with more gardens to visit  and more  Garden Fairs  to enjoy.

If anyone has Salvias  in their garden or their neighbour’s they don’t know the name of or plants they can’t identify, please take a photo and email it to  Let us  help you with
identifying those plants.

The 1st Thursday of each month, we will be conducting a Working B at our Salvia Display Garden, 10.30am- 3pm

This has been changed from Wednesdays to Thursdays.

Come along and enjoy a couple of hours  with other Salvia enthusiasts.
Bring a pair of secateurs, a large plastic bag for all those cuttings to take home, a tarp for rubbish, a chair and a plate to share.

This is your chance to see how all the different Salvias grow. A chance to brush up on your identification skills and help maintain the garden.
Without your help, there wouldn’t be any garden for you to wander through and enjoy.
