Hola! Mexican Celebration Week-End at Lullingstone Castle

The World Garden is delighted for the 2019 Mexican Celebration Weekend, Saturday 21 & Sunday 22 September, 11 am – 5 pm, to team up with the British Cactus & Succulent Society for CactusWorld LIVE – A succulent adventure!

There will be a cactus show with stunning specimens, plants for sale from leading nurseries, a variety of stalls and children’s attractions, as well as authentic Mexican food and music from Lullingstone’s very own Mariachi band!

Tom Hart Dyke, patron of the BCSS society, will lead two guided tours of the World Garden including Mexico & the cacti hot houses at 12.30pm and 2.30pm.  Tom will be joined by fellow horticulturalist, broadcaster and patron Ann Swithinbank, as well as houseplant writer and blogger Jane Perrone, who will be podcasting her popular On the Ledge show from the event.

There will also be talks, demonstrations, workshops and surgeries for everyone to learn more about these amazing cactus beauties in Lullingstone’s dedicated marquee. Darren Everest Dahlias returns for his third successful year to showcase his stunning Dahlias in the manor house, ready to inspire and offer a riot of colour.
