Middleton-cum-Fordley's 10th Open Gardens event. Some very different gardens including new ones: one set in 5 acres, another within a small old walled garden, elsewhere a newly constructed walled garden is evolving. A former market garden displays 100 year old wall topiary, while attracting wildlife is the emphasis in another. Several projects are 'work in progress'. David Austin 'New English' roses scent the air in a beautifully hidden garden. One gardener is also opening her studio as part of 'Suffolk Open Studios'. Two gardens display large garden sculptures by local artist Paul Richardson. 'Gardens in a Wheelbarrow' will again be featured.
