Green-fingered locals can once again enjoy a long-standing charity plant sale in Markyate.
The Markyate Plant Sale has raised nearly £85,000 for The Hospice of St Francis since it was set up in 1997.
There will be a selection of perennial plants, herbs, vegetables, hanging baskets, and more than 7,000 bedding plants at the garden party event.
Patrons can also enjoy refreshments, entertainment from Quintet of Six, and a raffle.
Organiser Ian Bradley said: “We were delighted that our green fingers generated such a worthwhile sum of money for the hospice, which cares for people facing life-limiting illnesses across Herts and Bucks and provides support for families and carers. Many people in Markyate have been touched by the charity’s work and I am so pleased we are able to give something back to this remarkable community resource.”
