Mama Buci Honey Breakfast on Wednesday 21st March 2018 7.30am - 9.30am

Join me at the Solent View Cafe for a Champagne breakfast; a fundraising event for Dementia UK Admiral Nurse Appeal. Chef Grant Walters will be creating a special breakfast menu inspired by Mama Buci Honey. Martin Zuch, the founder of Mama Buci, will be there to share with you the exciting story of how Mama Buci honey is helping 7,000 Zambian families improve their quality of life. I'll be there too, eating honey and showcasing some of my favourite bee-friendly plants. To book your Champagne breakfast please call Solent View Cafe on 07423 695606.
Solent View Cafe is now under new management and has a new chef. The cafe is on the same site as the nursery at Fakenham Farm, on Eddington Rd, St Helens, PO33 1XS.

Free talk/demo at the Nursery, last Thursday of every month, from 2pm until 2.45pm

Artists in the Garden Saturday 15th September 2018 10.30 - 15.30

What a day this will be! If you love plants, gardens and art then this is a must. We ran this event for the first time last year and really enjoyed it. The idea is that artists, writers, musicians and anyone who finds plants and gardens inspiring, will create work in the nursery to share with visitors and other artists. If you think the nursery would inspire you and you'd like to share your creativity with other artists please contact me on 07977 550050 for further information. If you'd like to come along and be inspired please join us on the day.

This is a free event and will take place at:
The Coastal Gardener Nursery, Fakenham Farm, Eddington Road, St Helens, Isle of Wight, PO35 5TN

Isle of Wight Day Saturday 21st September 2018 10.30 - 15.30

This is a free event and will take place at:
The Coastal Gardener Nursery, Fakenham Farm, Eddington Road, St Helens, Isle of Wight, PO35 5TN

Make it Christmas! Saturday 25th November 2016 10.30 am - 15.30 pm
This course has become a bit of a Coastal Gardener tradition! The idea is that instead of buying Christmas decorations and gifts, you come and make them yourself! You'll have the chance to make various types of wreaths, gifts made from sailing charts, drift wood Christmas trees and, as they say, much, much more! If you’d like to take a stance against the commercialism of Christmas or just want a day to explore your creativity then this is for you!
£45.00 To reserve your place please book now
This course will take place at our home in Bembridge. Feel free to park on our gravelled driveway.
Blue Haze (number 24) is on the right, on the unmade part of Beachfield Rd, PO35 5TN.
