NGS Garden Opening 2017!

This will be the third year of opening our garden at 42 Whitedown Alton GU341LU as part of the NGS Hampshire (National Garden Scheme). This year’s charity is for The Butterfly Conservation Trust; in celebration of our own garden and the ‘butterfly-field’ next to Ackender woods here in Alton.

We started some maintenance work last weekend and are positioning sculptures in good spots around the garden. All of a sudden the sculptures I have been working on since June seem to be finishing themselves off and I am looking forward to finding good places for them in the garden.  

It is looking very green and beautiful in the sunshine today with Jo’s beautiful planting continually amazing me as the seasons change. Opening mid August means visitors are able to see a late flowering garden in full swing!
As usual, kind neighbours and friends are helping with tickets, tea and cakes. 

We are looking forward to welcoming you into our vibrant town garden on the 12th and 13th August, 2-5pm. Our address is: 42 Whitedown, Alton, Hampshire, GU34 1LU - Come along for home baked cakes, beautiful planting and some brand new sculptures!
