Composting will be in the spotlight during talk in aid of Hidden Gardens which raises money for St Nicholas Hospice Care

Whether you’re a gardening extraordinaire or more of a novice why not come along to an informative talk and help support a good cause at the same time.

Dr Sarah Gull, who will be opening her Friars Lane garden as part of the Hidden Gardens event, which takes place on Sunday, June 17, in aid of St Nicholas Hospice Care, will be speaking about one of her favourite garden topics – composting.

Taking place at Marlow’s Garden Centre, Hollow Road, Bury St Edmunds, on Friday, June 8, the talk, which will run from 10am to 11am, will also see Dr Gull bring along her wormery complete with a plentiful supply of worms.

Dr Gull said: “The Hidden Gardens is much loved, and we hope to encourage people to come along who are interested in learning more about gardens and gardening. Worms are great fun for all ages, especially children.”

During June’s Hidden Gardens event, around 30 others will join Dr Gull’s minimalist garden, as an array of green spaces old and new, large and small will be opening across the town centre.

All gardens are within walking distance of each other and all gardens will be listed in the event’s programme, which includes a map.

The event runs from 11am-5pm and tickets cost £5 and can be bought on the day from the Hidden Gardens marquee on Angel Hill from 10.30am.
