RHS Gold Award Garden! Over several years local residents Melvyn and Ken have created a prize-winning horticultural oasis from a rubbish dump.
Instead of putting their feet up, they fashioned a varied garden with a pergola, gravel planting, climbers and roses, mixed herbaceous border and a pond. The rare-breed chickens and ducks eat juicy snails from the garden, and a small allotment area enables residents to grow fruit and vegetables.
Are you wondering what to do in retirement? Come and be inspired by these imaginative gentlemen creating a haven for the residents of Winterton House and the local community.
Capital Growth garden: 553
Gardeners: Melvyn Smith / Ken Davis // http://www.opensquares.org/detail/Winterton.html
