  • NGS open days etc. 2013 Posted on 20 November 2012

    Open 10 - 4 on every one of these days to hopefully avoid the garden becoming too crowded at any one time.
    Refreshments will be provided and all proceeds to the local cloisters appeal.
    Plants for sale.
    Admission £3 and planning to do return tickets (details tba).

    Directions to 1 White Cottages - B3395 for Bembridge.
    The 'Old' High St is straight on if coming through village or past the Windmill if coming from Sandown or Brading.

    Brief garden description - A dry gravel garden. Mainly used to grow and breed day lilies (Hemerocallis) 
    and these are in full bloom end June and beginning July. 
    The garden is predominantly herbaceous mixed with grasses and thus the garden changes dramatically over the year.
    Spring flowers provide interest before the day lilies and grasses and late perennials after. 
    The garden is long and narrow with narrow winding paths.    

    All details can be found in the National garden scheme yellow book
