Arbutus and Catalpa national collection holder to open doors for National Gardens Scheme day

Barton House, whose head gardener Kevin Line writes the "Digging Deeper" blog for Horticulture Week, will be opening up for the National Gardens Scheme on Sunday (May 26).

The property near Moreton-in-Marsh which is owned by Hamish and Gillian Cathie who have been actively engaged in refreshing parts of the garden since they took it on sixteen years ago, is home to two National Collections of Arbutus and Catalpa respectively.  

The garden will be open between 2pm and 6pm on May 26. Tickets cost £5 (adults) and £2.50 (children).
