Dulwich Gardens open for charity 2017
Enclosed with this Journal is a copy of our 2017 Dulwich Gardens open for charity booklet, with details of the local gardens that will be opening this year and that we hope you will take the chance to visit. Copies of the brochure are available in local garden centres and other outlets.
Many thanks to Ann Rutherford for producing it - and congratulations to her for opening her own magnificent garden in Dulwich Village again in 2017, for what will be its remarkable 20th year.
