Summer Plant Sale

With June having been unseasonably wet, the day of our summer plant sale was upon us and brought with it sunshine and warmth to the walled garden.

With volunteers and clients having been busy over the last six months working to propagate plants from root and stem cuttings, division and seed germination, everyones efforts culminated in a grand arrangement of potted plants ready to be purchased by visitors.

Our range of plans echoes the planting in the walled garden, particularly the double herbaceous border, so buying a plant enables visitors to take away a little piece of the garden to nurture and grow at home as well as supporting a local charity.

Proceeds from our plant sale will go towards the work that Beyond the Wall does within and beyond the walled garden, in supporting disabled adults to learn new skills, and develop their learning (including horticulture) through structured sessions an therapeutic activities.

Beyond the wall would like to say a big thank yo to the team of volunteers who made this years summer plant sale such a success, and of course to everyone who attended the day.

Plants will continue to be on sale on our plant stand daily at the end of the walled garden car park, and in addition we have a plant sale stand along the main road through Gisslingham.

June is the month of The Wildlife Trusts #30dayswild annual project. At BTW we are all taking part, with us spending each day in June doing something that connects us with nature.

Our first day involved us going for as walk in the woods and garden, taking photos of all things green and making a group digital collage with the photos.

Look out on our social media for other projects and activities throughout the month as we do #30dayswild.
