Garden Visits Spring and Summer 2022

 

After a very successful 2021 spring and summer season of members’ garden visits, we are hoping to have an equally successful 2022 season. A good time was had by all!

We are looking for gardens of any size that you think gardening-minded people might like to see. The gardens do not have to be immaculate or up to ‘show’ standard  but just have interesting features or lovely displays of snowdrops/ spring flowers/ interesting plants/ shrubs and trees or simply lots of summer colour!

It is all about the social aspect of it as well!   There are lots of very interesting people who love visiting gardens. Nothing nicer than comparing notes with fellow gardeners  over a cup of tea and a piece of cake ( optional of course )

If you could offer your garden for a couple of hours for between 6 and 10 people, split shifts if necessary, and we hope we have seen the back of Covid by then, please contact Lesley Wykes  for more information .
