Open Gardens Report
Due to its popularity last year, Whitgift once again opened up its grounds to the public in May, to take part in the National Garden Scheme (NGS) open gardens event. Visitors were able to enjoy Whitgift’s range of immaculate gardens and wildlife areas, home to wallabies and exotic birds. Children particularly enjoyed the maze, and young and old alike were intrigued by the peacocks, flamingos and wallabies. Months of hard work by the Garden Team were apparent in the vibrant borders and emerald green lawns.
Head Gardener, Sophie Tatzkow, commented, “We had a fantastic day once again. There were many very happy garden visitors on the day. I would like to extend a big ‘thank you’ to my team, and the grounds and maintenance staff that supported us in the lead up to the event.”
