Keen gardeners are in for a treat this autumn as Furzey Gardens in Minstead is hosting an end of year plant sale.

The plant sale is open from 10am to 4.30pm every day from Monday 21 October to Sunday 27 October, selling hardy perennials and quality shrubs.

Furzey Gardens is part of Minstead Trust, a charity supporting people with learning disabilities to live more independent and fulfilled lives.

All the plants have been nurtured by the learning disability team in the nursery at Furzey, who learn skills that will help them towards greater independence.

Visitors to the plant sales can also enjoy free entry to the shop and thatched tea room, which serves light lunches, cream teas and barista coffee. The tea room also provides training and employment opportunities for people with learning disabilities.

Sue Edser, Plant Nursery Instructor, said: ‘Autumn is the perfect time to plant shrubs and hardy perennials, including fuchsias, geums and penstemon. So grab this opportunity to stock up your garden at discount prices with all our quality plants at half price.

‘Of course you will also have the feel good factor of knowing that every purchase helps us to support people with learning disabilities to live more independent and fulfilled lives.’
