Six gardens in Ansley Village Warwickshire were due to open for the National Garden Scheme for the first time this year. After bringing the group together, co-ordinator Janet Down is not only keen to share the garden owners lovely gardens but to encourage more to join the group. Janet filmed the group and is delighted to share it with you here:
A closer look
Ansley is a small ex-mining village situated in North Warwickshire and the six gardens open are a selection of different styles and offerings. They range from a very small traditional cottage garden crammed with flowers and pots to larger gardens maximising the amazing views of the countryside. There is one that has been transformed into a walled garden, one with a large range of unusual plants and a country garden with mature plants and ancient roses. They each offer something different to the garden visitor. Five of the gardens are in close proximity with the opportunity to walk across the fields on public footpaths to the sixth garden for those who are able.
Due to the current restrictions only two of the gardens will open this summer, 1 Park Cottges and The Old Police House (66 Birmingham Road). They open on June 28th, 10am – 5pm on pre-booked time slot tickets. Find out more and book your tickets here
