Pie Corner, Bedmond, Herts

Tuesday 26th April 2022
Price includes a light lunch, at the Hollybush, Potters Crouch, with dessert and tea/coffee.

A privately owned garden, designed and created by Bella Stuart-Smith (sister-in law to Tom), to complement the 1980’s, neo-classical, architect- designed house. Formal near the house, the gardens become more informal towards the woodland. Our visit is timed to see the display of blossom, bulbs and wild garlic.
