About me

2018 - the garden, in Bracknell, Berkshire, will be open for charity under The National Garden Scheme will be open on Sunday 19th August 2018, from 1:30 till 5:30pm.

'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.
Also open, and covered by the entry fee, is 10 Shaftesbury Close, an inspiring garden in difficult conditions. The back garden, on free-draining sandy soil, contains several 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. Plants for sale at 'Devonia', teas at Shaftesbury Close, and produce at the allotments.
