Autumn exuberance post opening

A huge thank you to everyone who came to this years open garden! All in we had about 220 visitors and made about £3,600 for charity which was a new record for us. Thank you!

Special thanks go to the Secret Life Saxophone Quartet who played during the opening and really made it a special afternoon. They were fantastic, and played a great mix of songs including Copacabana and Life is a Cabaret....what more does a boy want! 

As always a big thank you to the 15+ people who helped out with the opening, including Alan who was again super generous donating lots of plants for the sale. 

A warm autumn has meant that the garden continues to crank up the lushness and exuberance to the max! The bananas are looking the best they have been, cannas continue to flower and the hardy gloxinia shines bright as the star of the October garden.

Begonia 'Torsa' whose leaves are bigger than my head!
