Susan opens her own garden to organised groups and for the National Gardens Scheme charities on advertised days in summer months. It is a large cottage garden with a view across the field to Stevington Windmill which is open to the public. The cottage used to be home for the windmill’s labourers in the early 1900s. The garden is cultivated for wildlife, relaxation and scent with sunny borders of flowering shrubs and roses. A shaded climber covered pergola under-planted with spring bulbs. Winding grass paths through colour themed herbaceous borders. A trellis border featuring colour and texture groupings. Fruit production and a culinary garden.

“Just wanted to tell you how much we enjoyed visiting your garden the other day. We have told our son he must visit next time you are open. It’s a really lovely garden and you’ve worked very hard on it. Thank you.” DP June 2013. .
