Sunday 10 May
23 Gresford Close, St Albans, AL4 0UB – Sunday 10th May, drop in anytime between 3-5 pm.
At the front is a mixture of fruit, vegetables, herbs and growbags for tomatoes. The multi-purpose back garden incorporates shaded seating areas, planting to attract wildlife and a small pond along with three raised beds, pots and small borders. Here vegetables, salad crops, herbs and a wide variety of fruit (including minarette pear trees, apples, plums, cherries, greengage, fig, medlar, blackberry, loganberry) are grown.
The garden has several water butts, composters and bins for leaf mould.
Gresford Close is a cul de sac off Colney Heath Lane, with limited street parking. Bikes can be locked in or near the garden. Several buses run along Hatfield Road (5 minutes’ walk away), stopping at Colney Heath Lane. Wheelchair access to the garden is restricted. No dogs please except guide dogs.
Garden visits are free: suggested donation £2 for over 16s; all proceeds go to TSA funds.
We still need people to help welcome people to the gardens, give out TSA publicity, collect donations etc, particularly at the garden openings later in the summer, so if you think you could help, please contact Romayne Hutchison on Romayne DOT Hutchison AT gmail DOT com . You would never be on your own, but we do need a few people each time, so an hour or so of your time would be really appreciated.
