Less than a week to  go until  Bridgwalton  House  re-opens to the public. All money raised will be donated to the Lingen Davies Cancer Charity, in memory of Geoff’s wife Mary,  who  created, tended and undeniably loved this award-winning garden with great passion.  Sadly  I never met Mary, however I really do feel that I meet her through her garden on a weekly basis, she really was an incredibly knowledgable plantswoman and designer, it  is a privilege to work at Bridgwalton.

Without doubt this garden is  immensely beautiful right through out the year. On  Sunday  the garden will be filled with the scent and colour of exquisite roses, perennials and  peonies.

Several of Marys friends have provided invaluable help as we have worked our way through the garden to ensure it will look  at its best –  the silver birch need their bark scrubbed to make them white again, borders need weeding, the topiary needs clipping, and finally the paths will need sweeping, and I need to gen up on some plant identification , as I am down for gardening advice.

If you are passing Telegraph Road near to Bridgnorth   between 2 – 5 p.m on  the 19th please consider calling  in, it would be lovely to see you in Marys garden.  Entry of £5.00 per adult,
