Mary Payne winner of a gold medal for the Winchester Grower's stand at this year's Chelsea Flower Show will be at Bradninch Manor on Saturday from 11am - 5pm to answer questions and talk about her planting designs.
Twenty gardens will open over the weekend, ranging from tiny terraces to mini country estates, including a small holding complete with piglets, lambs and ducks, all in aid of Bradninch Music Festival on June 11-13.
Bradninch Manor is open for the first time. The six acre garden has been extensively landscaped and planted to include an intricate formal garden with pleached limes and box edged beds. There are duck ponds, a stream and extensive meandering pathways lined with beds of herbaceous perennials.
Mary Payne who was responsible for the planting schemes at Lady Farm Garden in Somerset has designed the planting schemes at the Manor using extensive prairie style planting. Jill Billington the renowned garden designer and writer has also both worked her magic to help transform the garden into something very special.
