Old Rectory Gardens Sudborough

April showers,we have certainly had them and cold ones at that. We have had a busy time of late,mainly fund raising, for Marie Curie Cancer Care and on Sunday we were open for the NGS. We had around a 100 people who braved the weather and turned out, but having said that the garden is looking great.The teas  in the marque were in demand out of the rain and over £200 was raised for All Saints Church. The tulips are fantastic and the daffodils are still looking  goods and our flock of rare breed poultry is very popular. The marques have now been stored away until the weekend 14th June when many events are happening such as A Garden Evening With The Experts and The Thrapston Brass Band will be playing while you have your picnic in the garden. I will put up full details shortly.

Fingers crossed for Saturday when we are having a wedding reception in the garden.

Jack Frost is at it again and a couple of nights ago he turned our white magnolia in the stable yard brown but in fairness it was on the wane, luckily our Soulangeanas are still in bud and will look wonderful in a day or so. The tulips are beginning to make a showing and I hope that the weather remains cool so that they are looking their best on 19th April when  we are having a huge party in the Garden to show off our chickens amongst other thing to raise badly needed funds for Marie Curie Cancer Care.
