This “must see” garden has a spectacular collection of spring flowers, a notable snowdrop collection and is a master class in how to create interest and variety in a suburban garden. Described by Shirley Lanigan as “nothing short of a tour de force.” Hester will also talk about trees in the garden and how we prune and use them in a small space.
