On 20 and 21 April, Arthur Parkinson will be hosting a talk and practical session on summer gardening from 11a to 3p. Topics include seed sowing, dahlia tuber potting, summer flower combinations and more. Participants will practice ‘pricking-out’ seedlings to take home and tour the factory, with a Q&A session and two course lunch also included. Be sure to bring your gardening gloves! Tickets cost £35 and can be booked here.

The Factory will also be hosting a Plant Heritage plant fair on 2 May from 11a to 3p. It promises to be a beautiful afternoon with the courtyard and secret garden in full bloom, and the resident hens back from their winter retreat!
