St Stephens Avenue Gardens - Open Garden for NGS
Two gardens of similar size and aspect, developed in different styles - this yr opening a month later to give visitors a different experience. The front of number 20 is planted in the St Albans colours of yellow and blue. A wildlife pond and colour themed borders divide up the back garden. Architectural plants, specimen trees and clematis frame succulents on the round lawn. Through the arch are new beds of shade loving perennials, late summer display, and burgundy border. Number 30 has an informal gravel front garden; the Mediterranean style planting is tolerant of very dry conditions and poor soil. Clipped box, beech and hornbeam provide a framework for herbaceous planting and lawns in the back garden.
Combined adm £3.50, Children free. Times:2-6. Open for charity.
