As Winter surrounds us, its time to look to the spring and the year ahead. This is the case for the gardeners of Westbourne who look forward to Snowdrops, Crocuses, Muscari, Cyclamen, Primroses, Daffodils, Narcissi, Hellebores and other, rarer, species in a tumble of flowers at the beginning of Spring.
If conditions permit in the context of the pandemic Open Gardens Westbourne will return and bring a much needed event for us all to enjoy.
In months to come as days lengthen the purr of lawn-mowers will return, the click-clack of shears or tunnelling of trowels over garden fences, walls or hedges, in increasing preparation for the anticipated highlight of the summer.
Owners of at least 17 gardens will present the triumph of their efforts on the 20th June 2021, though the gardens are greatly varied in size, features and planting.
