On Sunday 21 July 2019, eight members kindly opened their gardens in Bidborough for our members to enjoy. The weather was warm and dry, allowing 100 people to explore and enjoy the gardens. The finale was the cream tea served on the terrace at 2 Darnley Drive. We would like to thank John Perry, Brenda Watts, Christine Carwardine, Glenys McDonald, June Hill, Linda & Kelvin Patterson, Val &Tony Fitzpatrick, and Alison and Paul Lush who allowed us to visit their gardens and for all their hard work to make their gardens look immaculate, as you can see from the following pictures.
BGA members visited “Hookwood House” a garden in Shipbourne open for the National Garden Scheme, on 14th June 2019. This is a charming country garden of 2 acres with herbaceous borders, nut plat, orchard and clipped yews. On arrival we were served wine and canapes, and given a brief talk about the garden by the owner Felicity Ward.
