Visit to Castle Gardens, Sherborne7th January 2012
A bright and dry day, hurrah!
Indeed a perfect day for a group outing to Castle Gardens garden centre in Sherborne. Unfortunately I forgot my camera so no photo of our jolly group none the less we had a super couple of hours making the most of our Gold Club Membership which entitled us to 25% discount on all our purchases.
Upon arrival we wound our way up through the garden centre towards the coffee shop not only to get our bearings but we thought it a good idea to warm our fingers around mugs of hot chocolate before we got started on the serious business of shopping.
Suitably warmed, we split up into smaller groups meeting back in the car park with trolleys loaded with compost, roses, seed potatoes, seeds, fertilizer, bird feeders, etc…
Castle Gardens is a beautiful garden centre set in the old walled kitchen gardens of Sherborne Castle, their stock is top quality, their staff knowledgable and helpful and at this time of year their fruit trees and roses deserve a visit.
Once home I got round to doing some weeding in my own garden so all in all a very satisfactory day!
(Gold Club discount continues on seeds and composts through February also (not plants though, that was a special for us today)).
