Haskins Garden Centres

Dorset farm owner to give vegetable advice at Haskins

Corinne Kirkham, owner manager of Windrush Farm Growers in Wimborne, is set to visit customers at Haskins Garden Centre in Ferndown on Saturday April 22 and in West End on Saturday April 29, to give hints and tips on growing vegetables at home.

From 10am to 2pm Corinne will be on hand at the centre in West End to answer any vegetable based questions.

Having set up her business in 1980, in Horton, Corinne learnt her gardening skills from her father and for more than 30 years Windrush Farm Growers has traded with Haskins.

Alasdair Urquhart, plant advisor at Haskins Garden Centre, said: “We’re really pleased to have Corinne join us at the centre. Windrush Farm Growers are great friends of Haskins and we’re sure that Corinne can provide advice on any vegetable question.

“Growing your own at home is increasingly important these days. Often we’ll hear of national or international shortages of certain crops across the world and it is really worrying, but by being educated on how to grow your favourite vegetables at home, it can be a rewarding and fun activity and you’re saving money in the long run.”
