Garden World's Bible garden attracts hundreds of onlookers

Hundreds of people attended a weekend devoted to plants from the Bible at Sanders Garden World, near Burnham-On-Sea, during the Bank Holiday weekend.

Reverend Brian Milloy from Hope Baptist Church in Highbridge making final adjustments to the Bible Garden helped by Jack Bradley of Sanders Garden WorldThe garden centre put together a display garden, entitled ‘The Olive Grove – a Biblical Garden dedicated to Peace’, where visitors were able to sit quietly and enjoy the sights and aromas of the biblically linked shrubs, trees and flowers.

Reverend Brian Milloy from Hope Baptist Church in Highbridge, who helped organise the event, explained: "Taking our inspiration from the bible, the people of Churches Together in Burnham and District put together the garden to create a restful and tranquil place."

He added: "You may be amazed how many people look for peace and solitude in a garden. Sometimes, particularly when you have a problem to solve, a hurt to heal, or a memory to cherish, a garden can be just what you need."

The Biblical garden was designed as a place for people to find some spiritual tranquillity and quiet and used plants such as palms, vines and olives, which are all mentioned in the Bible.

During the free weekend, garden centre staff gave advice to visitors on how to create calm and relaxing areas within their gardens.

The Biblical garden will be on display until Saturday, September 3.
