Amongst the hundreds of varieties we have potted this year, there are quite a number of new ones that we're trying.
Despite the heat, Barters Open Days were again a great success. With a tens of thousands of plants to choose from, trolleys were soon filling up as soon as the gates were opened on Friday morning. The refreshments were laid on in support of the RUH Forever Friends Appeal - the cakes were fabulous and needed eating quickly with it being so warm. Staff kept tunnels watered to try and keep the temperature down - dogs and customers were soaked on request!
After 16 years working at Barters Plant
Centre, Chris Smith has now retired. He will be greatly missed by his colleagues and our many customers. Chris has had a lifetime in horticulture working at the University of Bath and at Whitehall
Garden Centre before coming to Barters. We had a little get-together to mark the occasion. Barters' boss Legh Walker said a few words paying tribute to his knowledge and commitment to helping
Two of his great loves are tea and Victoria Sponge, so after a cuppa and some delicious sponge, Chris was presented with a horticulturally-themed bone china tea set.
