Open gardens at college’s site

Derby College’s Broomfield Hall is opening its grounds to the public on Sunday, May 15, as part of the National Gardens Scheme.

Visitors can enjoy guided garden tours and nature walks, meet the college’s horticultural experts for gardening advice and visit Broomfield Hall’s small animal, reptile and rare breed farm animals facilities.

Broomfield Hall’s Food Hub café and farm shop stocked with local produce and the plant sales centre will also be open. There will be a number of displays including floristry.

Admission to the college site, near Morley, is £2.50 for adults (children are free) with all proceeds being donated to the National Gardens Scheme’s nominated charities.

Assistant principal Jeremy Carter said: “This is a great opportunity for visitors to have a guided tour of the gardens which feature many rare specimens of plants and trees.”
