14th July Saturday/15th July Sunday – 10am to 5pm
Whichford Pottery is based near Shipston on Stour and was established in 1976 by Jim and Dominique Keeling. It is a family run business which has become very well known throughout the UK and is committed to making only the best classic hand- made English Flowerpots.
They employ and train local people and have a thriving apprenticeship scheme.
Whilst they are steeped in tradition they are not always old fashioned and pride themselves in producing innovative and well-thought out designs as well as creating special commissions and personalising flowerpots.
In July they are having one of their special events – The Dry Garden- when they will have Pots, Plants and drought-proof ideas for the arid areas of your garden.
There will be special offers on Pots, Pottery Tours, Willow Weaving and Home-Made Teas.
On both days there will also be two informal talks (free of charge) :-
“Succulent Gems” at 11am by Succulent and Cactus Expert Gillian Evison
“Pots for Hot Spots” at 2.30pm by Whichford Pottery Head Gardener Harriet Rycroft
Plants will be on sale throughout the weekend from Pennard Plants with grasses, agapanthus and perennials and from the Oxford Branch of the British Cactus & Succulent Society.
