Hello sparklygardener We have opened our garden 5 times now and all being well will open again on July 21st this year
I had a nose in my yellow book and your garden sounds really lovely - probably the exact opposite style to ours though We are no.44 in Surrey in the yellow book .
Whoever visited your garden and accepted you into the NGS must have loved it - as will your visitors I am sure
I was very nervous the first time we opened and a bit worried as to whether our visitors would like our garden. I needn't have worried - it was great to chat with people and we had some lovely comments.We had a visitors book .
Cakes and Tea are a VERY important part of the day
Make good use of your advertising pack and tell as many people as you can about your Open Days .It will be hard work but you will enjoy it so much - and raise money for charity
I see we will be opening on the same day in July - I would love to hear how you get on - please keep me posted
