Crocus Open Days
Based in Windlesham Surrey, Crocus are the largest UK gardening web site. Whilst they can supply everything a gardener might need, including good advice, what they really pride themselves on is their plants, stocking over four thousand different varieties.
They are very popular with garden designers and grew the plants for Cleve West’s Best In Show garden at Chelsea last year as well as providing the plants for eleven Gold Medal winning gardens in the last nine years.
Not normally open to the public this weekend Saturday is the first of four open days they have planned for 2012. So if you fancy a break from all the digging and weeding.
As well as getting to walk around the extensive nurseries there are tours which include the stock beds and the Chelsea tunnels.
All the details are here and if you’re lucky you might get to meet this little chap.
