21st April 2022

A good time was add by all on our coach trip to Johns Garden at Ashwood Nurseries. It was a lovely April day with plenty of sunshine and we were split into 2 groups for our tour of the garden. That was very interesting with a pond ,stumpery and very interesting planting. The nursery was very well laid out, meals at the restaurant were very tasty with some unusual scones that were scrumptious. The gardens will feature next week on Love your Garden with Alan Tichmarsh.
