Titchmarsh to appear at Frosts Garden Centre

TV gardener Alan Titchmarsh will be at Frosts Garden Centre in Woburn Sands on 18 April to help celebrate National Gardening Week.

Titchmarsh is visiting the centre for a day of gardening talks, a book signing and to meet and greet fans. Throughout the day there will be two 40 minute gardening talks.

The first talk takes place at 11am on how to create a garden to attract and provide for wildlife.  At 1pm fans are invited to return for a book signing and the chance to meet the man himself.  Then at 3pm, he will hold a second gardening talk where he’ll share all of his small garden secrets. 

Entrance to the talks costs £5 which will be donated to Supershoes, a charity which creates personalised canvas shoes for seriously ill and severely disabled children in the UK.  Supershoes is a charity very close to the team at Frosts, having been set up by Ken White, the managing director of Frosts Landscapes.  

Frosts Garden Centres managing director James Frost said:  "We are delighted to welcome Alan back, he’s a good friend of Frosts and we are excited that he’s going to host this day of talks for our visitors.  We wanted to take this opportunity to raise some money for charity as well; Supershoes is a fantastic initiative which we are glad to support."
