Paul and Maria Nielsen Bom opened the doors to their colourful garden in Beaver Lodge, Henson Road and welcomed dozens of plant-loving visitors.

Mrs Nielson Bom said: “It was extremely well attended and I am pleased to say that we made a total of £950 for the NGS.

“Thank you to everyone who supported us.”

The couple will open their “interesting” garden, which is divided into different ‘rooms’ including: oriental with pond and water features, bonsai, ferns and a continental area, from midday till 4pm on Saturday and Sunday.

Refreshments will be on sale.
