O – Open Gardens

By webcoreadmin On April 17, 2014 · Add Comment · O – Open Gardens

Many years living in London with little in the way of a garden, Barn & Beach were much more building and structure oriented, loving the open buildings scheme Open House London.
Never being quite aware of open gardens, if you wanted to see beautiful gardens there were plenty to visit, Hyde park, Regents park etc.

Moving to Ridlington, the first summer a rather scruffy home made banner proclaiming open gardens was greeted with great interest a chance to visit some lovely gardens and have a nose at the neighbours plot;

I have been searching for this years entries and happily found them here the neighbouring village of Bacton top of the list, a few enquiries have resulted in finding the local primary school are making scarecrows to display in their beach garden!! The village will open its doors or rather gardens on the 15th June, a date for the diary, always nice to see what does and doesn’t grow, I often find a stroll among the lanes is another nice way of finding the information, if you see good healthy strong specimens then they are the plants to go with.


Mr scarecrow coming to an open garden near you soon. Please look at the website and choose a date to suit your visit to Norfolk. Open gardens are a lovely family day out and help benefit local communities.

Visit Norfolk this spring, visit open gardens.
