Orchard Dene owners, Chris and Toby Marchant, will give us a private tour of their wholesale herbaceous nursery. Established in 1986, it is renowned for producing a wide range of hardy perennials, grasses and ferns in peat free compost. The nursery works with some of the country's top landscape designers, including recent collaborations with Piet Oudolf installing private and public landscape schemes. We will be shown how plants are grown under contract and see the next consignment of stock destined for the new Maggie's Centre at Royal Marsden Hospital in London. The tour concludes with a refreshing glass of wine or soft drink and a special opportunity for Friends to buy seasonal plants.
To book: contact Freya Jones, email email@example.com or telephone 07472 365 001.
Friends £20, guests £25. The maximum number of visitors is 40.
