Green fingered goodies raised £600 for St Peter’s Church in March when a successful plant sale was held.
The popular Gardening Festival had more than 500 shrubs and perennials to choose from along with home made cakes and a coffee bar.
Co-ordinator Paul Roberts said: “We are delighted at the amount of money raised. Usually there is another side event to raise funds but this year it was just plants - so to bring in so much money from that alone is brilliant. The festival gets better every year.”
Horticultural advice was on hand for budding and mature gardeners alike and free delivery service was provided for anyone struggling to take their purchases home.
Top prize at the event was a garden makeover worth £150 which was won by Mr and Mrs Rees of Upwell Road who won a truck load of shrubs, perennials and compost.
