With spring now in full swing, why not pop along to Hepscott Park later this week to create your very own colourful hanging basket.
A series of hanging basket workshops will be taking place on Friday 5 and Saturday 6 May at the Hepscott Park Horticultural Skills Unit , Hepscott Park which is adjacent to the Garden Cafe. The sessions cost £9 . This covers the cost of the plants, the hanging basket and assistance from a resident plant expert.
The Horticultural Skills Unit is a Northumberland County Council service which provides adults with learning disabilities the opportunity to learn and practise gardening skills.
All plants have been lovingly grown from either seed or cuttings so the plants are hardier than those imported from Europe. What’s more, any proceeds from the workshops will be reinvested back into this important service.
The event will be fun and informal and open to all ages. There is no need to book. Just drop in between 10-30am - 4pm on either day.
