In Slovenia, Saint Valentine or Zdravko was one of the saints of spring and one proverb says that “Saint Valentine brings the keys of roots”. Plants and flowers start to grow on this day.
So love is in the air this month at the Garden.
It will be celebrated with a special creative “Festival of Light’ workshop on Sunday 14th, with artist Emily Tracy.
Love of birds and wild-life will be our focus during half-term, with free activities for children.
Beloved old clothes and fabric will be given a new lease of life in another ‘Quilt Garden’ session on the last Sunday of the month
And if you love the Garden and would like to find out more about its history and the plants that grow here, we will have another free guided ‘stroll around the garden’ on Sunday 28 February.
The Garden is open every day 11am – 7pm, free to all. We are serving fresh home-made soups daily, using seasonal organic vegetables from Growing Communities.
Hope to see you here in February!
