Garden Opens Friday 27th March!



We are opening the garden this week due to Easter coming very soon in early April. Patricia has been working very hard to get everything ready, cutting back and planting, painting furniture and decorating the summer house and shed. It is looking beautiful and we have already had lots of people sitting out on the warmer days we had experienced recently.
