NGS Open Weekend 2018.

We were blessed with prefect weather for the Hanley Swan NGS Group open weekend this year. This encouraged 244 visitors to came through the open garden gates during the weekend….

Thanks must go to the other five garden owners, those who donated cakes and our band of volunteers who manned the entrance table, the car park, the plant stall and not least the catering team serving teas and cake, waiting at the tables and washing up.

The demand for refreshments peaked at around 3.00pm, with one couple returning on the Sunday for some more. (the entrance ticket covered both days.)

May Blooms.

The month of May has seen Our Garden@19 blessed with high temperatures by day, cool nights and thunderstorms.

The surviving flowers have put on a wonderful show.

Hopefully some of these will continue to flower for our NGS opening on June the 9th and 10th, to be joined by more still to come.

How has your garden survived the May weather?
