Southsea Gardens - Open Garden for NGS
Two town gardens in adjacent roads within easy walking distance, off St Ronan's Road. Victorian houses (not open) where the owners have created peaceful green spaces about 700 metres from Southsea promenade. 67 Gains Road is a small garden designed with artistic flair to create a haven where art and horticulture meet. The creative gardener has made the very most of the limited space with a good range of sculptures and plants including bamboos, ferns and succulents. The front garden has sculpted box and interesting planters. 28 St Ronans Avenue (145ft by 25ft) is divided into different areas including a wildflower meadow and pond. Agaves and echeverias grow in drier sandy parts. Some unusual trees and a pleached hornbeam screen at the end of the garden to give structure.
