HSWS Plant Sale May 2024

On an ideal day with planting in mind, a queue formed outside The Avenue Methodist Church Hall in Minehead on Saturday morning (May 18th) when Home-Start West Somerset held its annual plant sale.
Gardeners sifted through a huge selection of indoor plants, snapped up hardy outdoor perennials, pondered over sedums and Cavendish banana plants then went around the Hall again to satisfy their curiosity.

There was, once again, plenty on offer to tempt both the keen and experienced plant lover and for those customers who had growing queries there was plenty of knowledge on hand from the growers to help decision making.

The popular event raised a record-breaking £1712.98 for the charity.

The organisers thanked those who grew, donated, and bought plants, the volunteers, trustees and friends who gave up their time to ensure the success of the sale and the Methodist Church for hosting it.
Home-Start West Somerset offers friendship and informal support to families with young children under the age of seven living in West Somerset from Porlock in the east, Stogursey in the west and Dulverton in the south. It runs sessions for families from antenatal, to ‘Bringing Baby Home, Baby Massage and getting baby and parent/carer off to a good start. They have accreditation from Montessori for some of their programmes and offer a range of other services with allocated funding.

This year’s plant sale contributes significantly to the operational costs of this well used, much appreciated and respected Charity.

The long-established team behind the scenes are committed to staging the 2025 Home Start West Somerset Plant Sale on Saturday 17th May. Make a note in your diary!
