Well the time has nearly come to hang up our spades, and there’s just time to wrap a few last presents and hang the last bauble before we have to start wrapping our pigs in blankets and basting the turkey.

It’s been a busy but fantastic year – we’ve seen the sales of bird food soar at all three centres; we’ve helped develop a Millennium garden in Charlton Horethorne and have given the Templecombe station volunteers a helping hand on the way to entering the national Best Railway Station Awards; we’ve had a Birthday at Poundbury and at The Green Shed and celebrated Bees at Castle Gardens. We’ve had our second Wildlife Friendly Gardening competition and won the national Christmas Display competition for the third year – phew!

So here’s to a successful 2012 – come back and see us soon as we have some great offers in January look out for our news as celebrations are being planned for some very special Gardens Group Birthdays in 2012.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year
Mike and the whole team at The Gardens Group
