Local organic gardener and district councillor Graham Elliott will be hosting the panellists, who will be answering all gardening related questions.

Charlotte has said “growing up in the countryside, I’ve been around gardens and gardening since I was a child, and have my own productive organic garden, where I grow fruit, vegetables and useful plants all year round, as well as decorative perennials, native and ornamental species. I also believe in gardening with wildlife in mind, selecting species which will attract and support birds, bees, butterflies and other wild creatures.

“The Hall team are very grateful to Graham Elliott for once again supporting this event as host for the day as he will be adding a twist of humour and his own jocular style which is welcomed and enjoyed by everyone.”,
said a Hall spokesperson.

After the event, there will be a bring-and-buy plant sale, book sale, raffle and refreshments.

Tickets are £8 & £7 for Concessions. Doors open at 2pm, for a 2.30pm start.

Tickets are available online at direct from the box office open Monday to Saturday from 10am to 3pm or by calling 01502 770060.
