News from Durlston Country Park Swanage

Big thank you to the Durlston Staff and Ali and his girlfriend Caroline for all their help in setting up and for providing us with a great team of volunteers who got the garden up in record time and even managed to assemble the greenhouse without the printed instructions - they seem to have got lost so need to colour code the joints!
We were just starting to flag when the ladies hockey team turned up to help and they erected the grape vine in under an hour when it took one volunteer a day last time.

I would get very fat if I worked at Durlston as they sell Purbeck Ginger ice cream - had to have one everyday we were there!

Garden looks great! Nice to see it up again.

Open until 24th April
11.00 - 4pm each day

Going over tomorrow to re stuff the flower pots as they are sagging and to take photos. Might have to have another ginger ice cream too. Spotted a lovely pair of sandals in Swanage.

The Lighthouse, Poole's greenhouse looks good - its first showing since it was finished and we have put lovely things in it and plants growing up it.

Durlston is a great place to walk and the finished revamp of the castle looks good.
Dolphins around at the moment too.
