Bee’s Pit Cottage on Mill Street opened it’s gates on Sunday, 5 July 2015, in aid of Necton’s Allotment Association. Many locals availed of the opportunity for a gentle stroll through the beautifully landscaped gardens as an after lunch treat, followed by tea and cake on the terrace.
This garden is a delight and there is much to take in such as Rosa Rogosa boarders, the hot herb boarder and shady under-tree planting of hostas, ferns and other shade loving plants, rich in colours of deep green through to yellow. The grass path takes you through again into the sunshine where the planting changes to blooming boarders of roses, peonies, geraniums and many other beautiful perennials. There were ideas galore that could be taken and adapted easily to any size garden.
This fundrasing event provided over £152 for the Necton Allotment Society and it will go towards providing more facilities at the allotments for the benefit of plot holders and those who like to join them for a chat.
