    I’ve just returned from Merriments Nursery (Hurst Green, East Sussex) where I was preparing for a guided walk I’m giving with Helen Yemm (from the Telegraph) this Saturday May 3rd as part of National Nurseries Week. Helen will be talking about plant combinations and I will be encouraging those attending (and everyone else) to plant pollinator friendly plants. Merriments was looking very lovely as you can see from the accompanying photographs.
