Waterperry opens its doors

An Oxfordshire estate famed for its gardens and apple juice is to throw open its doors in January as it hosts a free open day.

Waterperry Gardens will hold its second open day on January 25th and gardeners will be welcome to visit areas normally closed to the public.

Guided tours of the estates ornamental gardens, orchards and plant nurseries will be among the attractions, but gardeners may wish to attend just to receive some valuable advice from the estates horticulture experts, according to horticulture manager, Rob Jacobs.

"Few people are aware that the majority of the plants sold in Waterperrys plant centre are grown in on-site nurseries by our team of expert staff", he said.

"We also produce around 13,000 bottles of our famous apple juice every year and this new event will give people the chance to find out so much more about Waterperry.

"Its a great opportunity to solve any mysteries you may have in your garden! Our team of experts will be happy to help identify pests or problems and to give advice about any aspect of gardening."

Gardeners are sure to pick up tips on how to improve their success in their own gardens and greenhouses, and the event is a great way to get in the mood for the summer flower show season.
