Droitwich Garden Gem

As spring fast approaches you may be looking for garden inspiration.  We’ve a gem on our doorstep! A beautiful Droitwich garden, which is part of the National Gardens Scheme, that will be opening once again in April.

National Gardens Scheme was founded in 1927 where people were asked to open up their gardens to the public for “a shilling a head”.  In the first year 609 gardens raised over £8000.  

Since then the National Gardens Scheme has donated over £45 million to its beneficiary charities, of which nearly £23 million has been donated within the last ten years. 

One local gem of a garden is at 24 Alexander Avenue, Droitwich.  Malley and David Terry’s beautifully designed garden, has been transformed over the last 20 years.  It is a plant person’s paradise with over 150 clematis varieties and a woodland area where shade loving plants and ferns thrive.  It has been featured in magazines and on television and in 2009 was listed no. 1 by The Daily Telegraph of the 50 best small gardens to visit.

Along with visiting the many gardens open up and down the country through the scheme you can also open your own garden!  It doesn’t need to be worthy of a gold at Chelsea or to be large or elaborate just interesting planning, planting and design.  Most owners choose to open twice a year so they can showcase their garden in different seasons.   If it’s something you would like to consider please click here  http://www.ngs.org.uk/get-involved/open-your-garden.aspx
