 Published on: 26th April 2019   |   By: News Bulletin   |   Category: Uncategorized

A couple in Pinner will be opening their garden for charity for a third time in June.

Brenda and Roy Jakes will be welcoming visitors on June 9 from 2pm to 5pm

The garden is at 12 Haywood Close, Pinner, HA5 3LQ is opening for the National Open Garden Scheme.

Entry is £4.50 for adults and free for children, there will be teas, cakes and plants for sale and all the money will go to charity.  

Brenda and Roy moved into the property six years ago and, from a blank canvass, the owners have developed a garden full of interest with a wide variety of plants and shrubs.

Herbaceous perennial borders surround an oval lawn.

The garden contains over 50 varieties of roses and clematis, a covered rose walk, gazebo, sink garden, water features, pleached hornbeam trees with box collars and a small vegetable & fruit garden.

Seating areas to rest and relax.

The plantaholic owner grows many of the annuals and perennials from seeds and cuttings, many of which will be on sale.

There are seating areas and a summerhouse to sit, meet friends and relax.

Last year was blessed with good weather and attracted 234 visitors in three hours raising £1672 for National Garden Scheme and Breast Cancer Now. 

The National Garden Scheme opens over 3700 gardens across the UK and the money raised in 2018 was £3.1m. 

This money goes mainly to nursing charities including McMillan Nurses, Marie Curie and Hospice UK.

Brenda and Roy said: “We hope everyone who came had a good afternoon and enjoyed the garden, tea, cakes, plants and had time to meet up with old friends or make new ones.  The afternoon was blessed with good weather and we hope people were able to get ideas for their own gardens. 

“If you are free on June 9 please come along and even if you cannot make it, we would like to encourage anyone who is interested in gardens to consider visiting an NGS garden or even opening their own garden for the NGS.  

“There is always more to be done in the garden and areas to mature; a garden is a journey, not just a destination.”
