Opening a garden

Today is the start of my gardening year ! I have had my first booking for garden visitors …. It has been a dream of mine for many years to open my garden, to raise money for cancer related charities … my family has been victim to this cruel disease many times and a few years ago a very close friend died with Breast Cancer. The dream began to materialise last summer as a result of a series of chance events and a meeting with the local NGS representative.

Truth to tell I hadn`t expected it to happen quite so quickly ! The garden might not be quite finished – but keep that secret !!! It will be … honest.

Sue - Don't forget there's a few GOYers who already open under the NGS who will be more than happy to give you a spot of advice should you need it - spritzherny, dotty daisy and yours truly. What date(s) are you open?

Very generous thinking. I hope the weather will be kind to you, and you get lots of visitors on the great day.
