Tulips 2021- Thank You!!

Thanks to our lovely supporters we have hit, and exceeded, our target to ensure we can buy our spring bulbs next year!

Whoopee! That really is a great relief to our gardeners, who are always thinking seasons and seasons ahead.

Your help now, and in the future, really will make a difference to the Gardens’ survival.

Did you know it costs over £550 per day Рevery day of the year to keep the Gardens running smoothly, so knowing our plant purchases for next year are safe really helps. Thanks again.

The Gardeners have just taken delivery of the summer bedding for this year- from our excellent local professional supplier Baginton’s.

The cosmos, zinnia, salvia, pelargoniums etc are all looking bright and full of vigour – our visitors may have missed Spring – lets hope Summer is not lost.

Without our regular volunteers it will take a little longer for these to go in, though. We also lost all our nursery and propagation spaces 18 months ago when the hotel decided it wanted to nullify a license agreement – so the plants are distributed around in tiny space and we have nowhere to propagate many of our own plants these days ūüôĀ

Looking back and looking forward:

Movement for Good funding…just a click away?

Our specialist insurers, Ecclesiastical, aren’t just a financial institution, their charitable purposes are written into their very constitution; a ‘Movement for Good’. This year they are distributing ¬£1million to good causes.¬† We would love to be one of them.

As a Charitable Trust the Gardens are dependent on visitor income and grants. Closure this spring because of the health crisis means we have already lost 75% of our annual earned income. So we are entering a period of uncertainty and loss (we are not alone in that).
If you can spare just a few minutes to click the link below  you can nominate the Gardens to win a £1,000 grant. Every little helps the Gardens keep going ..for all of us.

The deadline to apply is this Sunday 24th May

All you’ll need to do is type in our details – Castle Bromwich Hall Gardens Trust and our¬† charity number: 516855
Winners are drawn at random, so the more times a charity is nominated the more chance it has of being selected.
Thank you very much for your support, please also share if you can!
