Gardening Group – Visit to Denton
July saw 16 members enjoying a wonderful summers afternoon in a beautiful garden in Denton, just out side Garsington. The garden was Denton house and is only open on NGS days or to private parties such as ourselves.
The garden is a fine mixture of plantings,. topiary and mature trees. We were lucky enough to see the flowers of the Tulip tree and the Ginkgo tree, both are not common in this country.
We were shown round the garden by Kevin the gardener. He was a really nice man and his delight in his garden was obvious and of course he was very knowledgeable. The lady of the house was the delightful Waveney, I know, unusual name. She made us all welcome and provided us with a proper afternoon tea including cucumber sandwiches, it was all really good and everyone agreed it was a very good visit.
I would advise anyone to watch out for the opening days with NGS as it is well worth a visit.
This months visit on July 25th 2pm where we are booked in to see Widford farm gardens. This is a very local one so either meet there at 2pm or the Carterton car park for shared lifts at 1.30pm. These gardens have wonderful views over the Windrush Valley The visit with tea and cake is £6.
Please can anyone interested let me know ASAP so that I can send them numbers attending. Ann
