Ann and Darryl will share their journey of 12 years from a bare paddock but for one tree to their oasis in Kettering. It is a wonderful garden of ‘rooms’ with good use of natural and man made walls, fences and sculptures. I am sure you will find something that appeals.
They will share with you how they build wicking beds, how they use them, their successes and less successful moments. An honest approach.
