TV gardener Carol Klein opened the new Geoff Hamilton Border at Barnsdale Gardens to a wonderful turnout at the beginning of the month.
The new feature was redeveloped from the old Winter Border originally created by Geoff during his time presenting Gardeners’ World. It is made up largely of plants donated by his old friends, family and colleagues, in commemoration of his death 20 years ago.
Geoff ’s widow Lynda and son Nick spoke about the principals behind, and making of, the border, before Carol made an inspiring and emotional speech about Geoff Hamilton; what he meant to her and to so many other gardeners.
Carol then officially opened the border by planting the final plant, donated from her own garden in Devon.
Nick said: “It was lovely to see so many friends and we we’re so pleased that Carol could come and really make it a day to remember for everyone.”
