Garden open under National Garden Scheme

This weekend (June 8th/9th) Victoria Brocklebank and her husband Scott will open their  garden to the public as part of the National Garden Scheme (NGS).

All are welcome with all proceeds going to charity – gate money goes to the NGS to distribute to the many charities they support nationwide, tea & cake money goes to the charity of our choice – Rainbows Children’s Hospice.

It is a three acre rural garden which was created from scratch over the past six years meaning visitors can enjoy a mixture of established areas and a taste of what the future holds. It has been laid out in a formal style with garden rooms, many newly planted or still being developed. Highlights include formal rose gardens, herbaceous borders, two orchards, a pond and mature trees.

Victoria Brocklebank said: “We’re thrilled to be opening the garden for the first time to the public on behalf of the NGS and all the charitable causes it supports. Visitors will be able to enjoy the journey we are on with this garden with its blend of abundant maturity and vision for the future. We’re really looking forward to welcoming people to see the garden and to enjoy some tea and cake whatever the weather brings this weekend.”

Address: Bushbury, Bushbury Lane, Blackboys, TN22 5JE

The garden will be open Saturday and Sunday from 1pm to 5pm.

Tickets are £5 for adults, children admitted free.

Parking is in a field off Bushbury Lane which is 1 mile south of Blackboys – visitors should follow the yellow signs.
