NGS, gardens open for charity this week end on the Isle of Wight



The Pitts,  Bonchurch,  nr Ventnor,  Isle of Wight,  PO38 1NT

 I was visiting a customer’s garden on Bonchurch Shute last week, and so I’ll be interested to see or hear all bout this one, especially how the cliff has been gardened. The National Garden Schemes yellow book has this description: The garden was started from a blank canvas 8yrs ago and now contains many different areas of interest and a large collection of interesting perennials, shrubs and trees over approx 1 acre, part of which is a cliff. This is a new garden to open this year, which should mean its a popular day.

Opening dates and times:Saturday 16 June (11-5)
Admission:Admission £3, children free
With flowers that look and taste as good as these Chives, who needs ornamentals?

Thorley Manor
