Broxwood Court Spring Plant Fair in aid of The Cart Shed

 This is an annual event held at Broxwood Court in aid of a local charity, The Cart Shed. We last visited in 2022, two years ago. We know a number of people who have availed themselves of its services and have volunteered their own. We arrived around 1 pm (about halfway through the event) and there were a number of plant stalls that had nearly sold out. The entry fee was £7.50 per person which Mary thought was a little steep but it was all in a good cause.

We headed for the tea tent first where Mary had possibly the worst piece of banana cake she'd ever tasted but my scone/cream/jam combo was fine. The things we do for charity!

We had a look around the gardens and bought a few plants. While the sun was out it was pleasantly warm but around 3.30 pm, the temperature started to drop and it was time to head home. We'd seen some wood anemone plants for sale (a tad expensive) and promised ourselves to find some for our mini wood back home.
