The event is part of England’s annual celebration of heritage and culture, allowing visitors to view a collection of plants including cacti, succulents and bonsai trees and hear volunteers’ exciting plans for the historic 1930s greenhouse and a Crowdfunding campaign to raise £10,000 towards installing a permanent roof on the structure.
There will be plants for sale and visitors may also donate plants to boost the greenhouse’s stock.
