MIll Dene Garden featuring on Countryfile
11:40am Tuesday 8th July 2014 in News
MILL Dene Garden is featuring on the BBC programme Countryfile next month.
The episode due to air on August 10 will focus on the foundation of Women Returners to Amenity Gardening Scheme (WRAGS) which launched during the First World War.
Featuring on the programme will be Mill Dene's current trainees Debbie kings and Laura Muskett who are both keen lovers of gardens and want to extend their knowledge of horticulture.
Mill Dene, which is already a Partner Garden of the RHS (Royal Horticultural Society), has been taking part in the scheme for a number of years.
Meanwhile, an offer of free entry into the garden in return for 20 carrier bags for plant sales has now come to an end.
Owner Wendy Dare said she has been "overwhelmed" with the kindness of visitors and thanked everyone for taking part.
The picturesque attraction in School Lane is open from 10am to 5pm Tuesday to Friday and 9am to 2pm on Saturdays.
