Since I last contacted you in November, here we are in 2019 already. As I write this it is freezing cold outside, but the thought of the garden visiting year starting again fills me with joy. Our NGS Open Garden 2019 Season begins on Sunday 10th February with two 'Snowdrop Sunday' gardens for you to visit This is to let you know that all the National Garden Scheme open gardens are now live on the website: For the regular openings please visit https://www.ngs.org.uk/find-a-garden/ For the ‘By Arrangement’ openings it is https://www.ngs.org.uk/find-a-garden/by-arrangement/ If you want to have a look at a particular garden then please just type in the garden name to find it. To view all the Hampshire gardens the link is:- https://www.ngs.org.uk/find-a- garden/?location=Hampshire&from_date=&to_date=&date=all_dates&current_page=2 We have two NEW ‘By Arrangement’ gardens for 2019. Curiously enough they both have a touch of Japanese about them.
By Arrangement only: 1st to 31st May.
By Arrangement only: Sunday 14th July to Sunday 4th August: pm only.
Sages, Privett, Alton: £5.00 Children Free: Groups of 10 to 30: Tea/coffee on request:
A charming courtyard garden with a raised pond, pots of lilies and hydrangeas cascading over tiered flint walls, leads you up to the acre garden. Newly developed, designed and maintained by the owners in a setting of mature trees. Enjoy soft coloured planting, a glasshouse with unusual orchids, a tranquil Japanese style pond and jungle walk.
You can make arrangements to visit these two gardens (and indeed any of the By Arrangement’ gardens) by contacting the garden owners, whose details you will find on the website. We have experienced speakers, who are willing to visit groups to give talks on the history, the fantastic amount of donations and the way forward for the National Garden Scheme. If you are interested in arranging a talk, please contact me in the first place. If you no longer wish to receive newsletters from me - please let me know and I will delete your details from my contacts list.
