On Site Visit to Burley’s Gardens

If you have been to this nursery before, you will know how lovely it is. If you haven’t – then you are in for a treat!

Some of you will remember the Burley’s when they spoke at our February Pot Luck in 2016, and brought in all the lovely tropical plants. Now we are visiting their garden centre.

Marg will speak to us in a large group at about 7. She will tell you about their nursery, her tropicals and some ideas for making fairy gardens. You will then be allowed to wander, and shop. You will see perennials, tropicals, a very large fairy garden display, and possibly some annuals if the weather warms up.

Parking is very limited, so please try to car pool if possible.  We will meet at Trinity Church parking lot at 6 p.m. to load up cars. We will leave at 6:15 sharp.

The address is 2604 Television Rd ( just south of Parkhill)

We will be outdoors so please dress for the weather!!!  In case of really inclement weather, please check your email for a cancellation notice. We hope all will be a go though!
Because of the cool weather, we are asking you to bring your own beverage (possibly a hot one) to warm you up. Also, bring a chair if you want to sit.
