Mid Devon Show 2013

We are busy getting ready for the Mid Devon Show this Saturday,  come and find us in the Flower Marquee!  This year we are creating a ‘Perfect for Pollinators’ stand showcasing some of the plants for all seasons  that the bees and butterflies love.  This beautiful peacock butterfly has perfectly illustrated this by settling in on this Cirsium rivulare ‘Trevors Blue Wonder’!   Come and see the whole stand and find out how to encourage those very important pollinators (VIPs!)  into your garden.
