A Fantastic Garden Tour, Thank you to All!
This year’s Garden Tour was an enormous success for the Stratford and District Horticultural Society; over four hundred people visited the eight private gardens on the tour. It was a perfect day in terms of weather and the gardens were all unique with something for everyone.
We could not do this event without the many dedicated volunteers who pitch in to share their time and expertise so willingly and generously, many thanks for helping with this year's tour.
