As May brings some much needed sunshine, there is a definite hint that summer is almost here and that means our gardens need some care and attention. Unfortunately not all of us have Alan Titchmarsh levels of gardening expertise. Help is at hand as a panel of regional gardening experts are assembling in Stafford on 21st May to answer any green fingered queries. All proceeds from a “Gardeners Question Time” evening will help fund vital free care at Katharine House Hospice.

The event takes place on 21st May at 7.30pm at Burton Manor Primary School, Uplands Road, ST17 9PS – and promises an evening of gardening answers as well as refreshments a plant stall and raffle with an admission fee of just £2.

Katharine House Hospice Community Fundraiser Amy Johnson said

“Local gardeners have provided a huge amount of support to the hospice over this the years. The organiser of this event Fiona Horwath is no stranger to raising funds through her gardening expertise – every year she also organises the popular Rowley Park open gardens which have raised thousands for the Hospice. We are really excited about picking up some expert tips and “trade secrets” at the “Question Time” evening. The Rowley park gardens will also open again to the public on the 21st July”

Amy said:

“Open gardens have become real community days where neighbours, friends and visitors alike help us to raise vital funds by supporting the beautiful gardens – this year more gardens than ever are opening their gates”
