Sunday 27th January 2013 10am-2pm – Blandford Museum Victorian Garden Club is hosting a Potato Day in association with Pennard Plants at Pimperne Village Hall DT11 8UZ
Following the success of our first Potato Day in March 2012, we are pleased to be running another event in 2013. An opportunity to buy your seed potatoes early and get the varieties you want !
Dozens of varieties of potatoes for sale by the single tuber, onion sets, shallots, garlic, Heritage Seeds, fruit trees, rhubarb crowns and much more.
Pennard Plants have been running these events throughout the West Country and beyond, for several years. This year the Dorset venues are Bridport (12th January), Pimperne (27th January), Drimpton (9th Feb) and Lychett Matravers (2nd March).
The events are advertised by Pennards through various websites; the Blandford Museum Victorian Garden is advertising locally to more than 50 Dorset garden interest and other groups and in the National press.
Orders placed directly with Pennards may be collected on the day; debit/credit card facilities will be available.
All are welcome to this event, we will have craft and produce stalls, a plant ID competition and a children’s potato printing session. Refreshments will be served; drinks, homemade cakes and light lunches.
Entrance charge 50p, children free.
The venue will be well signed from all the access roads around Blandford and through Pimperne to the Village Hall, where there is ample free parking.
We are pleased that this is now an annual occasion in the local gardening calendar and hope we can rely on your support.
