We continue our look around members’ gardens in 2020 featuring another “Virtual Open Garden” as part of our programme showing a different garden every week. This is because we can’t visit gardens in person due to Coronavirus. A new garden will be posted up on the web-site each Sunday for the following week. To see the gardens featured previously, click on “Archives” and the tabs “August 2020”, “July 2020” and “June 2020″ in the right hand panel to scroll through the earlier gardens.

Anne & Graham Parsons’ Garden is this weeks featured garden.

Long term Bidborough residents, Graham and Anne Parsons seeing an opportunity to downsize in the village, moved 18 months ago to Gatehouse Farm Cottages. They have three seperate gardens. The courtyard garden was overrun with clematis and large shrubs. They now feel they have now made it their own private colourful area with climbing roses, salvias and seasonal bedding plants.

The main garden looking towards Penshurst, was taken back to a blank canvas and working with a local Landscaper, Adam, from Precision Building and Landscaping (07841 974887) they have created a small but pretty garden where breath taking and far reaching views can be enjoyed, as can bee seen by the following pictures taken in June.

The smallest garden is the “bus stop” garden, next to the front of their house beside the bus stop.
