Summer gardens celebrated at Station event

The Station will celebrate the best of the summer gardening season at an event this weekend.

The community venue, which was previously a garden centre and agricultural store before its restoration, will welcome local nurseries, florists, and artists on Saturday and Sunday from 10am to 4pm.

Visitors can take part in workshops to make their own stunning summer hanging basket, and for children there is a special seedball making workshop.

Visitors can also book to enjoy a demonstration of eco printing with summer leaves.

Events manager Sarah Iveson said: “We are really excited to welcome visitors to this new event at The Station.

“Summer is a glorious time of year for anyone who loves gardening, and we will have a lovely selection of stalls, with plants and produce from local growers, selling everything you need for your garden this summer.

“Visitors will also have the opportunity to get hands on at our gardening workshops, and to learn about nature inspired art.”

Workshops and demonstrations will be led by Ravensworth Nurseries, and Gillian Smellie Eco Printing, with stalls including Summerfield Nursery, Berry House Flowers, Hambleton Hill Nursery, and Gillian Smellie Eco Print and Plant Dyed Textiles.

Entry to the event is free, with charges for workshops and demonstrations, which can be booked online.
