Barters Nursery Open Days
How it works.
If you've been before, they need no introduction.
If you've never been before, this is what you need to know...
Occasionally each year, Barters' well-hidden wholesale nursery allows customers to roam all over its beds to pick out their own plants from a choice of tens of thousands.
The nursery is looking particularly good and though we've had a very busy winter and spring, there are still plenty of plants on offer. There are thousands of perennials and shrubs as well as ferns, grasses. climbers and larger shrubs too.
Perhaps most important is that just for two days, the plants are available to the public at virtually trade prices - which are significantly less than in the Plant Centre. If you know what you're looking for there are some real bargains to be had.
Please note that this time, we are finishing at 4.30pm instead of 5pm.
Over the years, thousands of pounds have been raised through the refreshments for good causes such as Macmillan Cancer, The RUH Cancer Unit and Corsley Playing Fields. This time the refreshments are in aid of Dorothy House Hospice in Winsley near Bradford on Avon. Just think, the more tea and coffee you drink and the more cake you eat, the more goes to these good causes.
So what's not to like?
Gates open each day at 10am and remain open till 4.30pm. Staff from both the plant centre and the nursery will be on hand to help and advise you. (One or two staff aren't available on the day so please be patient with those that are.)
We have recently topped up our range of roses and have some cracking plants on offerm many of them in flower - hybrid teas, floribundas, climbers and some
David Austin varieties as well. Click below to download a price list.
A great time was had by all. We were blessed with good weather, despite the forecast. Only once did people take shelter in the tunnels. Macmillan Coffee Morning raised over £1200 on the Friday, which we think is a record for our Open Days; on Saturday, over £500 was raised for Chapmanslade Church. So thank you to everyone for drinking tea and coffee and eating so much cake - and all the extra donations too - it's hugely appreciated by all those involved.
