Details for visit to Foxdale on 19 June

Our June garden visit is to Foxdale at Bunbury. Please meet promptly at the garden at 6.30pm.

Address: Foxdale, Vicarage Lane, Bunbury
Directions: Foxdale is on Vicarage Lane in Bunbury, opposite the Medical Practice.
Garden Charge: Donation to Tarporley Hospital
About the garden: Foxdale is the home of Mrs Leila Potter. The garden was designed by Edward Kemp, a renowned landscaped gardener who also designed Grosvenor Park at Chester. For symmetry he created a double entrance. He separated the kitchen gardens from the flower gardens, surrounding trees and shrubbery and sunk the flower garden nearest to the house to give the house a sense of elevation. The grass banks of the sunken garden still remain although much of the original planting and beds have gone.
Supper: For those wanting supper after the visit, this has been arranged at The Dysart Arms in Bunbury. Please let me have your choice of both mains and pudding by 12th June. See attached menu.

Either email alison.dentith@mypostoffice.co.uk or ring me on 01829 260866.

Guests and new members are always welcome. If you’re bringing a non member along please introduce them to a member of the committee when you arrive at the garden.
