Beer, Berberis and Big Skies
20th April 2015
The popular ‘Yellow Book’ garden Hunmanby Grange is opening for charity on 6th and 7th June.
The opening of the East Yorkshire garden coincides with the annual open day for the garden where award winning business Wold Top Brewery is situated.
For just £4.00 visitors will be able to tour the beautiful and interesting garden that Gill Mellor has created despite its exposure to the elements and a challenging soil. Gill will share her stories about how the garden has evolved over a quarter of a century into a series of gardens that have been developed depending on shelter, aspect, views and need. Refreshments will be available and there will be a plant sale.
Visitors to the brewery will see where and how the award-winning ales are made and will be able to talk to the brewery team about what makes Wold Top’s beer special.
Brewery owner and trained horticulturalist, Gill Mellor said: “We’re delighted to support the work of the NGS for the 22nd consecutive year, especially as we’re sponsoring Welcome to Yorkshire’s ‘Brewer’s Yard’ garden at The Chelsea Flower Show this year.”
The gardens and the brewery will be open between 11am and 5pm on both days and proceeds from the entry money will go via the NGS to charity. St. Cuthbert’s church in neighbouring Burton Fleming will benefit from the proceeds from the refreshments.
NGS gardens across England and Wales welcome over 750,000 visitors a year to 3,800 gardens of quality, character and interest and raise over £2.6 million each year for nursing, caring and gardening charities.
