Larch Cottage Nurseries Open Garden – Supporting The British Red Cross

Take advantage of the wonderful summer weather and help to raise funds for The British Red Cross and our vital work in the UK at the same time! Take your chance to see a usually private garden at Larch Cottage Nurseries, by the kind permission of owners Peter and Jo in their support for the British Red Cross!
A project which has taken five years to complete, this garden is a labour of love. Designed and built by Peter for his wedding to Jo in 2014, the gardens consist of meandering paths bordered by lush flower beds, a wildflower meadow, an orchard and lawn with a stream leading down to a small lake with the chapel at its head. The nursery also specialises in rare and unusual plants and the brilliant café restaurant serves beautiful food to match the surroundings. Heavenly!
It promises to be a fantastic day summer day out so please come and show your support. All funds raised will go to the British Red Cross.
