We were very lucky to be visited by a team of specialist judges and we were awarded the inspiration award in July 2012 despite the fact this project had only really just started.
Since then, many hours of hard work by numerous people have helped to transform this into an award winning garden. It is the gardening teams aim to bring our gardens back up to standard and to enter the Northampton in Bloom awards, which was last entered by Hunsbury Rural Skills in 2002.
It has been a busy year for the gardener's. The Victorian garden is nearly complete and needs plants to fill the long border. Work is in progress to finish the flower border beside the platform but generally the gardens have been quite attractive this year. Our hope is that the garden development will continue next year.
We meet once a week each Wednesday. Individuals or groups are most welcome to join in and learn from our experienced horticulturalists. For more details please contact us via the contacts form. But, please, just come along and see what's happening.
