Two Mile Ash has numerous well established gardens which are a credit to those who have created and maintain them. There are others which are ‘works in progress’ which often show considerable promise. Either way, they demonstrate just what can be done on our often challenging plots, and they can be a wonderful source of ideas and inspiration to others. The Two Mile Ash Environmental Group (TMAEG) is now planning for the Open Gardens week-end of 25th and 26th June 2016 for which we are inviting local gardeners to share their achievements with the public.
Our Questions and Answers page stresses that this is not a competition with prizes; rather it is planned as a highlight of the Two Mile Ash year to celebrate our gardens and the creativity of our gardeners. Our Q & As also cover many detailed points that potential entrants to Open Gardens will wish to know about – such as the scope for running a charity event – and it invites other residents to take part in the programme in various ways.
Our Gallery page shows views of gardens that were put on display in Open Gardens 2013 & 2014. Taken together, they illustrate the sheer variety of our gardens and they should provide plenty of ideas for the Open Gardeners of 2016 to pursue and develop.
Finally our Next Steps page sets out how to obtain further advice, and how to enter Open Gardens or to join in in other ways.
