Things are really hotting up at Barnsdale Gardens next month, with a selection of special weekend event days.

On Sunday, August 2 from noon to 4pm, there is a ‘Plant Lovers Day’ with Radio 4’s Matthew Briggs. Matt will be touring the gardens to discover the interesting species that you might otherwise miss.

On Sunday, August 9 from 9am to 4pm, there is a day where people of all ages can find out about the insect pals and pests in their back yard. Early risers can join a moth expert from 9am to 10am for a cuppa and a breakfast butty, to see what’s been caught overnight.

On Saturday and Sunday, August 15 and 16 from 11am to 4pm, there is a Summer Vegetable Weekend. Expert growers will be available to advise on vegetable production and demonstrate seasonal cookery.

All activities are free with garden admission. Entry is £7.50 for adults, £6.50 for concessions, £3.30 for children and a family of up to five is £21.
