Rookwoods’ Open gardens.
A few days back I went with my wife Kate and youngest son Nick to visit the gardens at ‘Rookwood’s’ in Sible Hedingham. which was taking part in the National Garden Scheme (NGS) Open Gardens.
It was a beautiful sunny day and we had the most amazing afternoon. The gardens were stunning, a mix of mature and young trees and shrubs, herbaceous borders and columns of tumbling roses. An old Victorian walled garden, hornbeam and wild flower beds all surrounded by a Victorian red brick wall. There was also an ancient oak wood which lies beyond a meadow of buttercups.
Since its foundation, the National Gardens Scheme has donated over £45 million to its beneficiary charities, of which nearly £23 million has been donated within the last ten years. The National Gardens Scheme’s commitment to nursing and caring remains constant and the charity continues to grow and flourish.
