GRANGE PARK HORTICULTURAL SOCIETY VISITS TO ALISON GREEN’S THEOBALDS FARM GARDEN ON SEPTEMBER 1ST AND 2ND.
Over 50 of our members enjoyed a wonderful visit to this local garden, enjoying a guided tour of the late summer flowers and planting, followed by tea and cake and a chat with the owner, Alison.
Over the last 20 years, what was just a 2-acre field has been cultivated into the garden that it is today.
24 members enjoyed a very informative guided walk through Woodcroft Wildspace on 3rd July.
Starting at the new entrance walk, and on to Contemplation Corner and continuing through woodland to see the eco-gym and through to the orchard where there are over 80 apple trees including heritage varieties.
The workings of the water storage and watering system were
explained and there was a break at the three ponds before going into the
Sensory Garden. A relaxing finish with tea and scones followed.
