Bishop’s Palace Garden Festival

A fantastic time was had by all at this year’s Bishop’s Palace Garden Festival. Our British grown scented Pinks proved to be a firm favourite amongst visitors as always. After completely selling out of flowers on day 1 we were forced to restock for day 2. We also had one particularly familiar fellow visit our stall to check out our awarding winning aroma.
