Some very welcome warm February days have reminded us that spring is on the way and the gardening year is getting into full swing.
If you are looking for inspiration for the coming year or just a lovely place to spend a few hours why not visit Trench Hill Sheepscombe, Gloucestershire (01452 814306) opening on Sunday, March 17, from 11am-5pm.
This is the first of several dates Trench Hill opens for the National Garden Scheme (NGS) and, as such, provides an ideal opportunity to see a garden changing over the seasons.
Set in a small woodland of approximately three acres, the garden enjoys panoramic views of its surroundings. Of particular interest at this time of year are plantings of spring bulbs, hellebores, a woodland walk, two small ponds, a waterfall and a larger conservation pond. Interesting wooden sculptures adorn the garden.
For visits later in the year enjoy a variety of herbaceous and mixed borders, rose garden, extensive vegetable plots and wildflower areas.
Trench Hill also offers a children's play area and a coffee shop.
Other dates Trench Hill will open for NGS are April 21, April 22, June 5, June 12, June 19, June 26, July 21, Aug 25, Sept 15.
