Birkdale gardens to open up to the public this weekend
by Natasha Young

DESPITE the summer being a washout so far, a trio of Birkdale Village gardens are still ready to impress when they open up to the public this weekend.

On Sunday (July 15) the gardens of 14 Saxon Road, 10 Meadow Avenue and 23 Ashton Road will on show to visitors as part of the National Gardens Scheme (NGS), which sees amateur gardeners shoing off their borders, lawns, shrubs and vegetable plots for charity.

Ahead of the event Geoff Fletcher, of 14 Saxon Road, said: “The gardens are still looking very good and there are lot of interesting elements such as water features, wildlife habitats and architectural plants. If you’re looking for some inspiration for your own garden it’s worth visiting all three in the group as they all offer something different.”

Each garden has its own unique character and visitors will be able to relax in sheltered spots, enjoy the friendly atmosphere and indulge in homemade cakes, bisucts and summer fruits.

Anyone interested in opening up their garden for charity next year can visit the NGS website for more details at
