Jo’s garden in The Avenue is not far from open fields and the river, and birds are encouraged to come to feeders beneath a cherry tree close to the house.
There are mixed borders for all seasons, a pergola and many beautiful roses.
Raised vegetable beds and fruit trees make this a very productive garden too.
An impressive new greenhouse is bursting with plants, many of which will be on sale to raise funds for Maidenhead Blind Club.
Well-behaved dogs are welcome!
Perennial and container plants will be for sale, with the profits going to the Thames Valley Hospice, so make sure you bring some money with you.
Driving through Bray, you cannot fail to wonder what lies behind the beautiful entrance to Jesus Hospital.
We are delighted that Jesus Hospital will be opening its doors for Maidenhead Open Gardens on Sunday 27th June from 1.00pm until 5.00pm providing the opportunity to visit this beautiful building and grounds.
The hospital and almshouses were founded in 1609 by William Goddard and built in a quadrangle between 1623 and 1628. Once through the historic gate you will be able to enjoy and admire the formal courtyard garden, orchard and spinney and visit the Jesus Hospital Chapel which will also open for the event.
We are very grateful to the Donnington Hospital Trust for agreeing to take part.
Cream teas will be available.
Why not come and see Martin’s paintings and garden on June 26-27, 2021?
