The well-known plantsman, formerly managing director of Hillier Nurseries and currently lecturer at My Garden School, is also a trustee of Greenfingers. He will open the naturalistic garden at his family home near Romsey in Hampshire on 14 June for a ticketed event, with drinks and canapés followed by a personal tour of the garden.

McIndoe and his wife Ros will welcome visitors to their Hampshire garden, which features a beautiful terrace, numerous pots and containers, a small gravel garden, two ponds, a large area of meadow and a wide variety of trees, shrubs and perennials.

As part of the tour they will share hints and tips for both novices and keen gardeners. Tickets can be booked by emailing or by calling 01494 674749.
