Midhurst Museum garden history on view

MIDHURST Museum is turning its attention to the garden for an April display at its Knockhundred Row home.

Items on display include early greenhouse sprayers, a Harrods white line marker and some early Goldrings seed packets from the shop in West Street.

Two photographs tell of Goldrings’ stand at the Royal Show held in Cowdray park in the late 1930s.

Also in the 1930s, Britains the toy manufacture produced a miniature garden in lead which gives an insight into toys of the past – many of the original packets have also been saved.

There are also pottery rhubarb forcers, a Victorian cloche and a collection of parrot bill secateurs.

As more volunteers have come forward the museum will now start opening on Saturdays as well as Fridays 10am-2pm.
