What Are You Doing Next Sunday Afternoon?


By AndrewR


Just a gentle reminder, to those of you who can reach Bracknell in east Berkshire, that two gardens are open here under the National Garden Scheme. We open the gates at 2pm for three hours and it costs just £3:50 to see both gardens (they are about a mile apart).
As you’ve probably guessed, one of them is mine and we sell plants here; the other belongs to my friend Gill who does the teas (and makes exceedingly good cakes).
Hope to meet some of you next Sunday

I really hope to be there to see both gardens Andrew but am going away early next day so plenty to do indoors and out. Will have to see how it goes. Did you say Gill's garden was in Harmanswater? Hope you both have a sunny, successful day if I don't make it. (and if I do!!)

Oh, I wish I could come, Andrew! It's just too far, and my daughter is on holiday, so we can't stay with her...I do hope you have a great day, both of you, and raise lots of money! Good luck - let us know how it goes.

Lily2 - yes, Gill is in Harmanswater. Go in from the Sports Centre roundabout and left at the pair of mini roundabouts into Nightingale Crescent. She is in the second turning on the right (Shaftesbury Close, the first turning just goes in to a block of flats). Hope you can make it

I was checking the train times earlier today Andrew. It seems quite an easy journey for me but as it's a mile between the two gardens I will probably only see yours. It's certainly my intention to be there.

Good luck with your open garden day on Sunday.
I hope it all goes well :o)
