AN AWARD-WINNING plant nursery in Whitchurch has raised more than £1,000 for a good cause.

Hardy’s Cottage Garden Plants held a charity open day to raise money for Naomi House’s Caterpillar Appeal at its Priory Lane nursery.

The Sutton Scotney-based charity launched its Caterpillar Appeal on February 17 with the aim of raising £4million to redevelop the children’s hospice.

The Whitchurch event, which was opened by BBC One Show and Garden Revival TV presenter Christine Walkden and was free to enter, gave visitors the opportunity to go behind-the-scenes of the flower nursery and learn about the operational work that is carried out on a day-to-day basis.

There was also a chance to grab a bargain with visitors being treated to a 20 per cent discount on plants from the nursery. Items were also on sale from Pocock Roses, in Romsey, and garden giftware from Petersfield-based Barbara Roe.

Julie Miller, office manager at Hardy’s Cottage Garden Plants, said: “It went really well and it was a nice day. People came along and gave donations as they came in.”
