Get down to the garden centre this Easter weekend

Tuesday, May 13, 2014

Get down to the garden centre in Stapleton this Easter weekend and you're in for a real treat. This is the busiest gardening weekend of the whole year: four whole days free to enjoy your garden. It's no wonder everyone's suddenly bursting with spring fever, ready to go out into the garden and start making the most of spring.

We've got plenty of events planned for all the family, from planting demonstrations to hands-on practical sessions so you can have a go yourself. The kids can have fun getting their fingers dirty planting sunflower seeds (perhaps you could have a family competition to see whose grows tallest!), as well as painting flower pots and craft activities. And while you're here, you can stock up on all you need to get your gardening year started, from seed potatoes and handy veg plug plants to a colourful selection of bedding plants to fill containers and hanging baskets.

We're getting into the Easter spirit too: look out for Easter egg hunts, meet the Easter Bunny and go hunting for Easter eggs - great for keeping the kids entertained. Treat yourself to some of the delicious Easter specials on offer in our restaurant, and take home goodies from our fantastic selection of Easter gifts for the perfect way to round off a really special green-fingered weekend.
