Saturday 20th July The owners of a private garden in Woldingham have kindly agreed to open up their garden to members of the society. Full details to be announced nearer the time. The couple started the transformation of the garden some 8 years ago importing over 70 tonnes of earth to level what was then a sloping garden. This enabled a raised terrace area with integral flower beds, to be built. Later a large industrial sized greenhouse was installed to house the huge cactus and succulent collection supplemented by a further greenhouse in 2017 to accommodate a huge collection of hippeastrums.
