Patricia Elkington is highly respected within the National Garden Scheme and has in the past been the County organiser - although now ‘retired’ Patricia still opens her ‘Little Court’ garden for the NGS.
‘Little Court’ first opened for the National Garden Scheme in 1984 and over the years Patricia has refined the planting into what is now one the the most popular gardens in the Hants NGS.
As for the overall look of the garden Patricia says, “There was a temptation to try and grow some of everything, but then I found I shouldn’t, a more tranquil effect is given with repetition of key plants.”
For our Garden Club Patricia will talk about how colour can be misused and how less really can be more.
