Grab yourself some gardening goodies at the popular St Peter’s Church garden and flower festival in March.

The festival takes place on Saturday May 9 from 8 to noon with more than 500 shrubs and perennials to choose from.

Horticultural advice will be free for budding and mature gardeners alike and free delivery service is provided for those who may struggle to take their purchases home.

For canes, compost or soil the festival will have a variety of accessories to give your plants every chance to thrive.

For the third year running the festival will mean a whole new garden for someone.

Top prize at the event will be shrubs, perennials and biennials worth £150.

The prize includes delivery, compost, labour and planting.

Organiser Paul Roberts said: “All the winner will have to do is sit back and watch as their garden is transformed into something even Monty Don would envy.”

A strip of five tickets is £2.50.

The festival will have stalls and distractions including a spring-themed craft and baking festival by local guides and brownies.

Refreshments will be available.

If you’re a keen gardener with plants to spare, then St. Peter’s Church would welcome any donations you can make. Simply bring your surplus plants along to add to the stalls.
