special event celebrating fruit is to be held at a Brent Knoll
garden centre next weekend.
Sanders Garden World is holding a 'Juicy Fruits Weekend' on Saturday

in growing their own produce.
Peter Burks, General Manager, told Burnham-On-Sea.com: "During
our Juicy Fruits Weekend we will have a display of fruit trees
and bushes in our undercover bedding area for people to see."
"Members of staff will also be on hand to offer tips on choosing
the right fruit tree for your garden. They will also be giving
complimentary advice on how to keep trees free from pests and
"Our horticultural experts will be able to answer visitors
questions on how to make sure apples, pears and soft fruit, such
as strawberries, raspberries and blackcurrants, are ripe and ready
to be picked. They will also be offering advice on pruning fruit
trees and canes."
The event takes place on Saturday from 10am until 6pm and on Sunday
from 10am until 4pm.
