A CELEBRATED garden designer will be talking about her life on and off screen during an annual open day event.

Presenter for BBC Radio 4’s Gardeners’ Question Time, Bunny Guinness, will be speaking at Braxted Park Estate in Great Braxted, Witham.

The event on Tuesday, June 11 is part of the National Garden Scheme’s Open Day.

Bunny is giving her talk in aid of Horatio’s Garden, the charity which creates and cares for beautiful accessible gardens in NHS spinal injury centres.

Bunny will be sharing her thoughtful insights into a world behind the scenes of TV, radio and of course her gardens.

Horatio’s Garden has been receiving grants from the National Garden Scheme for its first four gardens and the scheme has promised to be a major funder for the next ten years.

Scheme organiser Susan Copeland said: “We are delighted that once again we have a talk from a high-profile speaker at this very special annual open garden.

“Braxted Park is a Grade two park of exceptional significance and we are most grateful to its owners Duncan and Nicky Clark, along with their fantastic team, for their generosity and support of the charity and the National Garden Scheme.”

Braxted Park is a private estate and is not normally open to the public, so the event presents a rare chance to take a closer look at this beautiful garden.

Head Gardener Andrea Cooper will be on hand to answer questions and guided tours for a donation of £5 on the day.

Light lunches, refreshments and afternoon teas will be available for visitors to enjoy in the Walled Garden Pavilion during the day.

There will be plants, crafts and merchandise available to purchase.

The talk will start at noon and entry costs £15 per person.

The park gardens are open as well from 10am to 4pm which costs £6.

All proceeds will go to the National Garden Scheme charities including Macmillan Cancer Support, Marie Curie Cancer Care, Hospice UK and the Queen’s Nursing Institute.
