In June 2016, a group from PHG visited Edmondsham House, where the Head Gardener, Andrew Haynes, showed us how to transplant our new plant purchases into our gardens.

We are looking forward to seeing you all tomorrow morning, Sunday, at the Giant Plant Sale. Sausmarez Manor, Fort Road, parking in the field opposite. We open at 10:00am, but there will be a queue before that. Here is a small selection of plants for sale.

These are Hydrangea 'Runaway Bride'. It can be grown successfully in a pot or in the ground and it is unusual as it has flowers all the way up the stem. It was RHS Chelsea Flower Show Plant of the Year 2018.

This pelargonium is called Sweet Mimosa and will be available to buy at our Giant Plant Sale on Sunday 29th May.

Claire Cathcart will be chatting about the Giant Plant Sale to Tattie Thompson and Linda Fermont at about 12:40 tomorrow, Wednesday, 25th May. The Giant Plant Sale takes place on Sunday, 29th May at 10:00am at Sausmarez Manor, Fort Road.
