64 High Street, Markyate, AL3 8HZ
Saturday 20th May
Held in a delightful, private family garden in the middle of the village of Markyate, you could not wish for a better venue in which to select your summer bedding plants.
This year marks the 21st birthday of the annual Markyate Plant Sale and the organising team is hoping to make it a double celebration by beating all previous records and raising over £10,000 for The Hospice of St Francis!
The sale will include more than 50 varieties of popular annuals plus some beautiful new additions. There will also be a bigger selection of perennials on sale this year, as well as, herbs, vegetables and hanging baskets. To complete your visit, you can enjoy home baked cakes, rolls and refreshments whilst being entertained by the Kings of Herts Barbershop Group and Katie’s Jumping Fleas Ukulele Band. There’s fun for the children too and a host of great raffle prizes to be won.
The team is also taking orders now for its beautiful hanging baskets and tubs. Renowned for their long-life, you can specify your own choice of colour scheme – or you can leave it to the team to surprise you. Customers can also supply their own tubs and containers for planting up. Prices are from £15 for 12in baskets and £22 for 14in. Please call Ian Bradley on 01582 943133 to discuss your requirements by the end of April.
From its modest beginnings 21 years ago the sale has evolved into a full-blown garden party that the whole family will enjoy - and it’s FREE to attend.
