Clitheroe Brownies visit Holden Clogh Nurseryad learn about gardening from proprietor John Foley.

Clitheroe Brownies spent a fun morning at Holden Clough Nursery with nursery owner John Foley, learning all about plants and how to plant a flower bed by choosing the right plants for the right places.

After planting the flower bed themselves they they had a bite to eat at The Garden Kitchen – the nursery’s new on-site café after successfully completing their gardening challenge.

The girls belong to the 4th Clitheroe St Michael and St John’s Brownies and are celebrating the Big Brownie 100th Birthday - marking the centenary of the founding in the Brownies in 1914.

John Foley, winner of the the BBC Young Gardener competition, commented: “It’s great fun to be passing on gardening tricks and tips, especially with the Brownies being such a young keen bunch. They will all go home with their green fingers and might even try a bit of gardening at home.”

John likes to keep an eye on the young gardeners out there; being only 26 himself he strives to keep flying the flag for young gardeners and has further plans to develop working with the younger generation at Holden Clough Nursery. As a multi award-winning plant nursery in the heart of the ribble valley there really can be no better place to encourage the budding young gardeners among us!
