Sutton gardens to open to public

Two gardens in Sutton are opening to the public as part of the National Garden Scheme on Sunday, 1st September.

East Meets West, 85 Cowpes Close, and Spring Bank House, 84 Kirkby Road, will be open from noon to 5pm.

East Meets West has sizeable acers, bamboos and Japanese lanterns, together with a cloud pruned tree with pond and water lilies, representing the East part of the garden, whilst the West contains a trompe d’oeil arch, which creates a magical garden illusion with an arch shaped ‘rainbow flower bed, providing a flamboyant colour arrangement.

Spring Bank House boasts Mediterranean planting, a bog garden, summerhouse and white garden, alongside many
interesting artefacts ensures this garden offers much variety.

Begun in 2012, it now features hundreds of rare plants. Two terraces punctuate its slope and a woodland area with hardy exotics and a wildlife pond offer cobbled paths and mown grass for a choice of garden circuits.

There will be plants for sale.
