We decided after opening the garden for a number of years in aid of the local church, along with two other gardens in the village to open for the NGS in 2015.
I started my blog, Our garden@19 to provide a record of our trials and tribulations in preparing for the weekend at the end of May.
The following year three more gardens joined us to open in June. We have plant stalls and cream teas available, with all the profits donated to the National Garden Scheme NGS. You can find out more about the NGS by visiting their website Here This year, 2017 a record amount of over £3 million will be donated to the predominately nursing charities they support.
Please read the pages about The Garden and The Team, you know what they say, “Behind every successful man? is a hard working team.”
The details of the opening will be published in the NGS Yellow Book and on their website in the new year.
We also enjoy visiting other open gardens, some of these will feature on the blog.
