Peckover House gardener to open her own garden for orangery restoration fund

WHEN a National Trust gardener spends so much time working to make Peckover House’s garden look so perfect, how does she manage to look after her own?

Is it sad and neglected or is it a true gem, a reflection of her creativeness and care?

Jenny Windsor, a gardener at Peckover House in Wisbech, is offering a chance to find out on Sunday September 4 when she opens her 10-acre garden to the public for the first time to raise funds for the work so urgently needed on Peckover’s orangery.

Jenny’s herbaceous borders, kitchen garden, orchard and wildflower meadow will be open from 11am-4pm. Entrance will cost �3 and tea, coffee and homemade cakes will be available in the garden at Burtonfield, Lynn Road, Wisbech.

All proceeds will go to the orangery restoration fund, so there’s no better way to help preserve this lovely part of Peckover’s gardens than spending time in the peace and beauty of a gardener’s own paradise.
