Ramridge Cottage, Andover SP11 0QG 11.30 onwards
By Kind Permission of Elizabeth Henley
Ramridge Cottage garden is set in about 5 acres with an adjoining wild flower meadow. There is a formal garden within yew hedges, a large lawn with pergola, and 2 walled gardens and a gravel garden. In this difficult spring of so many frosts, the pots and later flowering plants may be yet to reach their best.
Elizabeth has kindly said that members may picnic in her garden. There are many places and benches to picnic and there is parking in the field which will be signposted at the bottom of the track.
