Sunday 12 July 10am - 5pmThe Telegraph & Argus adds:
A chance to meet our team of volunteer gardeners at the Museum and ask them how their garden grows! Bring along a plant to swap, or just enjoy the opportunity to acquire a cutting from the Brontë garden for your own patch. Refreshments available. All donations will go towards maintaining the Parsonage gardens.
Resident gardeners Jenny Whitehead and Geoff Taylor have been preparing for the event on Sunday.
Parsonage spokesman Hermione said the Parsonage gardens were full bloom.
She said: “You can enjoy the natural surroundings of the Parsonage, just as the Brontës did.
“We are busy potting-up the spare plants for a bring-and-buy stall. All you need to do is bring a plant from your garden and go away with one of our home grown plants.”
