“If you have a garden and a library, you have everything you need” – Cicero

This quote from the Roman Statesman has been adapted from a letter he wrote. He actually said “If you have a garden in your library, everything will be completefor a productive meeting.” Roman gardens were designed for thinking, philosophising and discourse. Cicero may have done a little too much of that as less than three years later he was assassinated on the orders of Mark Antony.

On Saturday 3 June we will have plenty for your garden in our library. Our annual Plant Sale will be on from 10am until 12pm. The plants have been lovingly grown by Chris, one of our trustees, and this year he has a fabulous collection on offer including annuals and beautiful herbaceous perennials.
