Wayne, Carol, Mike and Louise.jpg

Last Wednesday we teamed up with Winstone’s Bookshop to host a talk and book signing at Castle Gardens with Gardeners’ World presenter, Carol Klein. Despite the blustery wind and rain, the Butterfly House was fit to bursting and Carol gave a very amusing overview of her new book, Making a Garden, which is on sale now at Winstone’s Bookshop in Sherborne.

An evening with Alan Titchmarsh.jpg

On Thursday we headed to The Crown Hotel in Blandford for An Evening with Alan Titchmarsh in aid of Army Benevolent Fund (ABF) The Soldiers’ Charity. With gardening-themed hymn parodies, potted poetry and amusing anecdotes, the much celebrated gardener, broadcaster and novelist had the audience enthralled. We were delighted to sponsor this event and help raise £3,000 for the charity, which has been supporting serving soldiers, veterans and their families since 1944.
