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.
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.
