The Garden Community for Garden Lovers

Congratulations to Grenville and Alan


I expect that the editor of the ‘Mail on Sunday’ is wondering why this week’s circulation figures went sky-high! Well, it was the members of GOY buying it up to read the article about the ‘WOW’ garden in Bristol!

Mind you, I suspect that Grenville and Alan bought up the whole stock in their local Newsagent – but what a fantastic honour to have a whole page about their garden! I can’t blame them, can you?

Congratulations, guys. Love from me.

Congrats. Captain Grenville and Alan.
Get ready for an invasion of Mail on Sunday readers, queueing up to visit your gardens.

Look out for a line of people all the way back to Bristol airport. There'll be vans selling ice-creams and hot-dogs.

A good thing you accept visitors by appointment only !
