As many of you will know there has long been a nursery at Halecat. In 2011 it was taken over by Abi and Tom who grow a range of perennial plants, shrubs and trees, the majority of which are grown on site.
On Sunday 11th September they are having a garden party with practical demonstrations, free talks and more.
Some of the outbuildings of the house have been converted into workshops and the artists will be open as well. One of them is my friend, Caroline who makes beautiful batik paintings & fabrics, many of which are plant based. On Monday I took some of our gardening books over to Halecat and Caroline now has them there on sale.
