Garden Open for Charity - London
7 June 2020
Matthew Bradby, the QNI’s Head of Communications is opening his garden as part of the National Garden Scheme.
The National Garden Scheme provides vital support for nursing and caring charities, including the QNI. This is now the fourth year Matthew has opened his garden for charity.
Last year the garden was featured on ITV’s Love Your Garden programme, creating a new Mediterranean themed seating area in a dry, sunny spot.
Refreshments will be available, including home made wine, and there will be home made preserves and plants for sale.
Entry on the door is £4. There is no charge for children and dogs are welcome.
Full information about the event is available on the NGS website.
It's been another challenging year in the garden - we've had months of heavy rain over the winter. The lawn has become a bit of a bog - I will re-seed part of it but I want to dig up the grass under the willow tree to create a shady new seating area. The mild weather has meant that lots of plants have kept growing right through the winter; there have been plenty of flowers out and bumblebees buzzing around, even in January. I've also been putting up more bird boxes to create nesting sites for birds. Now I'm looking forward to Spring, sowing some seeds and planning ahead for some vibrant Summer colours. I would love to welcome you on 7th June and show you some of the projects I've been working on. And you can try my gooseberry wine.Matthew Bradby
