A GORGEOUS Hedon garden is to be open for public viewing this month for charity. Derek and Mavis Rosindale will be opening their beautiful garden at OMEGA, 79 Magdalen Lane in Hedon, for public viewing in June as part of the National Gardens Scheme– Gardens Open for Charity. The garden will be open Saturday 20th June and Sunday 21st June 2015 from 12 to 5.30pm. The entry charge per adult is £3 (no charge for accompanied children). Cream Teas, beverages and cakes are available and afternoon tea can be booked in advance by telephone. Last June the Rosindale’s raised £1,000 which was from visitors to their OMEGA garden and also from plant sales. £350 went to Dove House Hospice. The Trustees of the National Gardens Scheme announced in March that £2.6 million had been distributed to its beneficiary charities as a result of garden openings in 2014. Garden notes: Front garden has box hedging and densely planted borders. Small side garden acers, ferns and planted troughs. The patio has planted containers.
