We had eleven gardens open to the public, many which have never been previously open, plus The White Horse pub gardens. There was a wide variety including
– pretty, bijou garden with good views
– very private, packed with surprises at every turn; beautiful herbaceous planting amongst bird-friendly shrubs, trees and climbers
– hidden jewel packed with planting for a beautiful display
– raised flower beds around a grassy glade with a woodland copse for a back-drop
All within easy walking distance and most are wheelchair friendly.
