One more chance for a garden visit this year

A BROMSGROVE garden is opening for visitors later this month with the National Garden Scheme, raising money for several charities.

Most people probably think that by November all garden owners opening their gardens to the public for the National Garden Scheme will have closed for the winter season – but this is a garden with a difference.

The Granary, a stunning garden in Stoke Heath, owned by Jonathan and Lorna Hill, will be open on Friday and Saturday 19th and 20th November from 4 p.m. despite sunset being only 10 minutes later.

In daylight visitors would normally walk round a hidden ⅓ acre traditional garden with extensive views.

There is a sweeping lawn down to a pond, mature trees, various borders with mixed flowers and shrubs, pots, seating, patios and sculptures, including a metal warthog, created in Zimbabwe, named Walter.

But it is in the dark that this garden reveals its other identity through creative lighting and this November opening will have also have a festive theme and will continue until 8 p.m.

Admission is only £4 per adult, children free, but due to restricted parking, visitors must book in advance with the garden owners by emailing or phoning or texting to 07766 011946.
