Garden details:

9 Clarkes Spring (off Station Road) HP23 5QL
16 years ago an estate agent showed the owners the house but it was not the house they were looking for. However, when they saw beyond the 7ft dense hedge at the end of the garden they immediately fell in love with the ever-changing views across the fields, Aldbury Nowers and beyond. They wanted to create a wildlife garden to blend in with the landscape, enough work to give them a bit of exercise, but not so much that they wouldn’t have time to sit back and enjoy listening to the skylarks or watching the sunset with a G&T!

2 disabled spaces at the front of the property, additional parking at The Wolds (Station Road), No.12 & No.14 Clarkes Spring and Station Road, subject to availability – up to the canal bridge.

The Hundreds, Cow Lane HP23 5NS
The owner of this garden considers it a sanctuary where nature spontaneously fills the beds. She could call it her garden of weeds, as she feels she has little control over the planting. The owner feels that the garden connects her to the earth, calms her and brings her into the present.

87 Grove Park HP23 5JR
The owners have lived there over 30 years, leaving the shape of the rear garden, with just side borders and the rest of the grass, untouched until 15 years ago when they added flower beds in the centre to make it more interesting. Mainly cottage garden plants, many grow from seed. The rockery was originally further back but was moved forward to make a composting area behind. The willow tree was planted by the previous owner own had seen a willow tree cut down and exclaimed her sadness whereby she was handed a twig and told to stick it in the ground – and there it began.

Garden not fully wheelchair accessible, no dogs, Tring Yarn Bombers display and sales proceeds to RGP.

The Croft, 18 Station Road HP23 5NG
Over the years the garden has seen paddling pools and goal posts, now it’s a peaceful haven for enjoyment and relaxation. The owners dabble and are no experts horticulturally but the joy the garden offers them is enormous.

Pimms & refreshments available, 1 disabled space in front garden, dogs on leads. 

Tring Open GardensWoodlands, Bulbourne HP23 5QE
Although the owners have lived at the property for many years, they have only recently tried to be gardeners. The garden is part of an old orchard retaining four mature fruit trees. There is a wonderful view over the fields, canal, towards Marsworth. The owner is trying to create a herbaceous/cottage feel and develop the beds year on year. It’s work in progress!

38 Miswell Lane HP23 4DD
The owners bought the house, many years ago, it had been empty for a year so the garden was a jungle. They cleared it and made it child friendly with mostly lawn and shaped beds around the edges. On retirement they made the garden their own and now it is their sanctuary where they spend many happy hours. They hope it will inspire you with your garden.

Garden not wheelchair accessible, no dogs, on street parking in Miswell Lane and Barbers Walk subject to availability.

98 Western Road HP23 4BJ
Up until 3 years ago this garden was the tarmac car park behind the vets on Western Road.
