About me

2016 - the garden, in Bracknell, Berkshire, will be open for charity early this year on Saturday 30th April from 2 till 5pm, along with two others nearby.

'Devonia' is a plantsman's garden, planted for all season interest. There is a 'no watering' principle at work for all established plants as well.
24 Lysander Drive is on a new housing estate. The garden is only four years old, but scooped 'Best Front Garden' in the town's best garden competition in 2014.
Finally, at 10 Shaftesbury Close, an inspiring garden in difficult conditions. The back garden, on free-draining sandy soil, contains 12 mature pines trees, but still looks good all year round.
There will also be about a dozen allotments open this year as well.

Parking is at a nearby Community Centre, where plants and produce are for sale, also teas, with home-made cakes to die for, will be served here.
