Visits to ALISON GREEN’S Garden

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.

Beth Chatto Garden Visit

This years Coach outing to the Beth Chatto Garden near Colchester.


The quiz on the coach had a floral theme and as usual there was a sweepstake.

We stopped off en route at St Botolph’s Priory to stretch our legs and have a photo opportunity.

Sunday Roast Lunch at the Cricketers pub followed before our visit to the Garden. Everyone was free to wander for a few hours taking in the beautiful scenery and flowers.  To finish off, there was time to purchase from the nursery and then enjoy a nice cuppa with home made cake in a room especially opened for us.  An occasional light shower did not spoil the day which ended back home at 6.30.
