Class 1 have been busy planting for St Michael’s Hospice plant fair which takes place in May. If you have any spare plants that you would like to donate to this great cause please bring them into school by Monday 29 April as they are being collected by the hospice on this day. Thank you.
At the Fair
Plant lovers can browse a wide range of herbaceous perennials, bedding plants, annuals, trees, shrubs, alpines, bulbs, carnivorous and indoor plants grown by professional and amateur gardeners. In addition to plants, there will be fresh strawberries and asparagus; beautiful handcrafted wooden jewellery and home decor; cards, prints, coasters and mugs; wild bird food; pottery and preserves; natural honey products; plus organic fruit and vegetables. Something for everyone!
This year the Fair is expanding into the Hospice’s lower garden – a large, tranquil, open grass area. A golf buggy will transport visitors from the car park to the Plant Fair site.
Hot and cold drinks plus fresh, homemade cakes will be available in our newly-refurbished cafe, all day on both days. Delicious two-course lunches will be served between 12pm and 2pm each day. There is no booking necessary for lunches…just turn up.
We are pleased to announce six new traders attending in 2019: Hort Plants from Bodenham with trees, shrubs and topiary; Mynd Hardy Plants Ltd from Diddlebury, Shropshire with perennials; The Wild Bird Store from Hereford, selling wild bird food; Danielle Flowers Contemporary Craft, selling handcrafted, wooden home decor and jewellery; Seggin Bees from Leominster with natural honey products; and Skylark Organics from Bromyard with organic fruit and vegetables. We look forward to seeing their wonderful displays.
