The sun shone for a group from Barnsley U3A, August 2021


We opened our garden for the ‘Yellow Book’ for the first time in 2018. On 18th July we welcomed a group from Dore.  ‘Dore to Door’, the newsletter of Dore Village Society, did a write-up:

“On 18th July many members visited the enchanted garden of Hilary Hutson, one of our favourite local speakers.  Despite the very dry weather, Hilary’s garden was a joy to behold.  With so many interesting and uncommon species not easily found in local outlets.  It was like discovering something new and quite exotic right on our doorstep.  Twenty three years of hard work have gone into the garden and the result is amazing.  Hilary’s stone alpine troughs, of which there were several, were also of particular interest.  Members were surprised to learn that only one of these was actually genuine stone.  Others had been manufactured by our host and what a great job she had done.  Our members were privileged to enjoy this private visit.  Hilary’s garden was open to the public under the National Garden Scheme on 29th July from 10.30 a.m. to 4.30 p.m.  All proceeds from the visits are donated to charity.  Well done Hilary and a very big thank you.”
