Special treats for April!

Tim Richardson CollageWe’re delighted to welcome Tim Richardson as our special guest for the Gardens Literary Lunch on Tuesday, April 25th.

We’re looking forward to a humourous exploration of the gardeners regular cry, “You should have been here last week” which is the title of his latest book.

This is a collection of Tim’s ‘sharp cuttings’, taken from his notable columns gathered from the likes of The Telegraph, the Garden Design Journal, and the Financial Times. His chosen topics are amongst the most wide ranging of today’s garden writing; intelligent, thought provoking and witty.

He will bring all this and more to West Green House as he is also the founder and Festival Director of the Chelsea Fringe. Now in its sixth year,  the Fringe will celebrate all things gardening from May 20th to June 4th and we’ve asked Tim to give us a sneak peek!

Our second floral event this year is our popular Spring Flowers Workshop on Tuesday April 4th. Sandra will show you how to create hand tied posies and pretty arrangements. It’s a day for beginners and flower enthusiasts alike.

And let’s not forget Easter, especially as we’re also open all day on Easter Monday. Little ones can enjoy our popular Owl and the Easter Egg Hunt on Easter Sunday, where the fun starts from 2pm (no need to book) with a gift for every participant (whilst stocks last).

Full details of all these and more are on our  Events Page and bookings are being taken now.

We look forward to seeing you!
