The National Summer Gardens Day 2009

In 2009 the Rutland Group organised the National HPS Summer Gardens Day visiting members' gardens in the county by coaches from Whissendine. Here are some photographs taken on the day:

Some other visitors welcomed the sun

Plant Sales are an essential part of any HPS Summer Day. Above outside Brian and Judith's waiting for visitors to come out of the garden and, below, outside Henry and Pat Woolston's terraced woodland garden

Henry shows his terraced woodland garden to visitors

Jim Bolton, at the time chair of the HPS Rutland Group, opened his garden on the day too.
With even more plants for sale!
