Had a visit to one of our forum users today.

Derek has a beautiful home garden and pond.
He is considering opening his garden for charity on the 29th July to forum users.
So that he can judge the interest please reply to this post.


A few taster pics there is much more to see it will be fantastic:-







Was a real pleasure to visit today ,thanks Derek you are a gent.

Pete,

Its a real good cause a cancer hospice.

I believe it would be a £3 entry with lots of really nice plants on sale at very reasonable prices.

Derek,
You certainly did not ,I could listen to you all week long. Its always good to speak to knowledgeable, passionate genuine people, your attention to detail is fantastic. Lorraine and I will be there on the day, she was sad that she had not been able to visit you with me.

Would have thought there would have been a better response, FORUM USERS are going to miss a real treat.

I think that would be a good idea Laura.

Lots of forum and club members have seen Derek's garden previously,but he has really taken it to the next level. Well worth a visit.

It really is a superb garden and pond set up and I’m sure it will be at its peak then. For anybody that hasn’t been to Derek’s it really is worth going down. If we are not away then we will pop over to support, won’t know till closer the date Derek.

Kind regards
