An introduction to the garden

This is the garden as it looked last summer (for about five minutes, on a rare sunny day). We opened the garden for the first

time last August for the National Gardens Scheme, which raises money for a variety of charities, but mainly those offering care and support to cancer patients. In November, by a cruel coincidence, my husband Craig was diagnosed with non-Hodgkins lymphoma. We did think about cancelling the garden opening this year, but decided that our experience made us even more determined to help provide support for other people. Craig is now in full remission, and at last we can look forward to enjoying the garden this summer. So if you're in Wandsworth on 31 August, please do come along. I'll post full details nearer the time
