January at the Garden

January 12, 2017

jan16_27Happy new year for 2017 – wishing everyone a good year of creativity, warm friendship, and abundant growing!

The Garden is open every day in January 11am until 7pm.  Already our lovely little  snowdrops are popping up, the first of a succession of late Winter and early Spring flowering bulbs to brighten winter days.

Our cafe is open every day serving hot drinks, home-made cakes and a daily soup, made with seasonal vegetables.

The wood-burning stove is lit daily in the Pineapple House to keep everyone warm and there are lots of cosy blankets and hot-water bottles for outdoor sitting if you fancy getting some fresh air.

Happy Christmas from the Garden!

Happy Christmas from Dalston to friends far & wide. Big thanks to all our Garden volunteers, supporters, neighbours and supporters who have kept the Garden blooming this year. Wishing you all peace and joy for the festive season! The Garden will remain closed for hibernation until 12 January 2017.
