St. George’s Day
Feeling patriotic? Come and enjoy our celebratory St George’s two-course lunch and glass of House wine £24 (no dragon meat, we promise)
England’s Patron Saint, St George, is still venerated in a large number of places, by followers of particular occupations and sufferers from certain diseases. George is the patron saint of Aragon, Catalonia, Georgia, Lithuania, Palestine, Portugal, Germany and Greece; and of Moscow, Istanbul, Genoa and Venice (second to St Mark). He is patron of soldiers, cavalry and chivalry; of farmers and field workers, Boy Scouts and butchers; of horses, riders and saddlers; and of sufferers from leprosy, plague and syphilis and is also the patron saint of archers.

Garden Talk and Q&A
Peter Dowle of Howle Hill Nursery talks about his Gold Medal 2012 Corsican Garden designed for L’Occitane
Peter Dowle has a long history of building gardens at the Chelsea Flower Show, which has been part of his life since he first went at the age of 9 with his father, the distinguished garden designer Julian Dowle. His ‘After the Fire’ earned Peter and the Howle Hill Nursery team an amazing 9th Gold Medal and Best in Category at the home of show gardens. More recently, Peter’s tongue-in-cheek Credit Crunch Gardens caught the eye of HRH Prince Philip who, most amused by the Banker’s Garden with its monopoly board, asked if he could roll the dice!
