Easter Weekend at Riverside
Easter is always a great time to be gardening and with the wonderful weather we’ve been having over the last couple of weeks everything in the garden is alive and putting on lots of spring growth.
At Riverside we’ll be making sure we have the best selection of plants for the bank holiday weekend with deliveries arriving all week. Spring perennials are looking their best and full of colour, with Dicentras, Brunnera and Tiarella looking particularly good. Bedding plants began arriving last week and by Friday we’ll have fresh stock of 6-pack summer bedding, including Geraniums, Snapdragons and Nicotiana.
Over the last month the Japanese Maples (Acer) have come into leaf and we have a lovely range of the elegant plants in all shades of red and green. The Rhododendrons are coming into flower with the dwarf varieties first to bloom and Azaleas not far behind. All of these plants can be grown successfully in pots and a slightly shaded spot.
Our newly extended Café continues to be popular with its airy new interior and sunny outdoor seating. Cake and coffee will be served all day alongside a delicious breakfast and lunch menu.
Riverside Egg Hunt
We’ll be holding our traditional Easter Egg Hunt from Friday to Monday. Track down the six painted eggs around Riverside, colour in your sheet and get some chocolate for your efforts. What could be better?
It’s going to be a lovely weekend and we hope you can join us.
