It’s been a fun, but exhausting year maintaining the garden, especially with the exceptionally hot weather we experienced during the mid-Summer months, but this hasn’t stopped me from entering my garden into two competitions.
Firstly I was visited by representatives from Coolings Garden Centre who were judging this years ‘Bromley in Bloom 2018’ competition. They were especially impressed with my vegetable area.
I was very happy to be Commended in the Best Back Garden category, winning a certificate and shield.
I was also awarded with a Silver award in the Best Large Back Garden category in The London Garden Society (All London Championship) .
Both set of judging took place in mid-July during the height of the hot weather.
Get your diaries at the ready, because Freda’s Garden is opening up to the public this Summer.
Freda will be opening her garden with a full afternoon of musical entertainment on Sunday 1st July (2-5pm). This is always a popular event, and along with the new changes Freda has brought to her garden, this will be a truly wonderful afternoon not to be missed by both new and frequent visitors. Alongside the entertainment will be light refreshments, Freda’s art gallery (where visitors can purchase copies of her prints) and a variety of stalls. This year Freda will be raising money for the NSPCC.
Freda will then be opening her garden as part of the National Garden Scheme Open Gardens on Sunday 19th August (12-4pm). This will be an opportunity to enjoy the tranquility of the garden in the latter part of the Summer. The afternoon will offer light refreshments to visitors, and again they will be able to visit Freda’s art gallery.
