National Gardening Week

April 15, 2013 by  

National Gardening Week, GARDENERS are being encouraged to create mini meadows with wild flowers during National Gardening Week which begins today, Monday.

The Royal Horticultural Society’s aim to ‘get Britain gardening’ and Glazebury garden specialists Bents Garden and home has planned a number of events designed to get people outdoors and into their gardens.

Visitors to Bents will have the opportunity to learn about lawn care repair at the a demonstration on April 18 and can pick up a garden recipe sheet to create their own container style mini meadowsuitable for any sized garden.

Bents have planned a mini meadow workshop Wednesday, April 17, where customers will be able to learn how to plant their own wild flower haven.

Bents’ MD Matthew Bent said: “In recent years there has been a massive reduction in the amount of wild flowers with little being done to replace what’s been lost. This year’s National Gardening Week aims to redress this to increase the amount of wild flowers and attract butterflies, bees and other insects.”

Weeping Ash Garden, next to the garden centre and one of Cheshire’s ‘garden’s of distinction’, will also be open throughout the week, weather permitting.
