Members’ Open Garden: Renata Hume, 10 Cross Street, Letchworth
Renata Hume’s garden in Letchworth is open three times in the coming week:
- Friday 15th May, 5 to 8pm
- Saturday 16th May, 11am – 2pm
- Sunday 17th May, 2 – 5pm
A cottage garden fronts a Letchworth Garden City exhibition cottage of 1905. The back garden contains informal planting dictated by the gently sloping plot and three formal circular lawns. Trees, shrubs, grasses and herbaceous perennials combine to create interest in the different areas. The garden also contains a lily pond, a small pond for wildlife, a well-stocked greenhouse and an apple walk with a selection of old varieties.
