This coming 12th June, Binsted Nursery will be hosting a LEAF Open Farm Sunday event on behalf of the Farplants Group. Being part of a cooperative, Binsted, Walberton, Fleurie and Toddington Nurseries will be hosting the event on rotation to enable members of the public to see what happens behind closed doors to get their favourite garden plants to market. Walberton started the ball rolling by hosting in 2019 and Binsted hope to build on that success with an activity filled event at their Lake Lane site in Barnham, West Sussex.
On the day, visitors will have the opportunity to go on guided tours around Binsted’s main site, seeing where and how 2 million pots of herbs and 1/2 a million perennial, succulent and patio plants are grown, and 3.7 million bulbs are potted. There will be pot and seed you own activities for adults and children alike; a plant sale where visitors will have the opportunity to buy plants from across the Farplants Group at a discounted rate; stalls showcasing our Integrated Crop Management (ICM) approach, informing visitors about the biological controls we use to keep pests in check; a charity stall hosted by Perennial, the UK’s only charity dedicated to people in horticulture; refreshments, food and more!
Other horticultural sites in the local area will be hosting too, so why not make a day of it. Visit https://farmsunday.org/visit-a-farm to find out more about our event and others close by.
