Open Garden in Kessingland. Saturday 7th July 2018

Members of the Society enjoyed looking round the garden which had a good mix of planting including lots of trees and shrubs, a mix of annual and perennial flowers, with a fish pond and a wildlife pond.

There was a small vegetable patch with runner beans, broad beans, potatoes, sweet corn and courgettes. There was a double row of exhibition sweet peas some reaching about seven foot in height requiring a step ladder to reach them. A table in a shady part of the garden was full of various varieties of fuchsias. A new venture was the stone sink containing succulents by the back door, there were also many roses in bloom including climbing roses up a trellis. Fortunately the weather was very kind, and it was pleasant to sit in the garden and enjoy a cup of tea and cake. It would have been nice to have had some more visitors but unfortunately the date clashed with the World Cup and other events.
