A SURPRISE pop-up garden has opened for charity, with Koi Carp, flowers and lots more for the green fingered to marvel at.

Walnut Cottage of Bricklehampton near Pershore will be opening for charity under the National Garden Scheme on June 23.

It is a one and a half acre garden with views of Bredon Hill, designed into rooms, many of which have been created using high formal hedging of beech, hornbeam, copper beech and yew.

There is a small “front garden” with a circular gravel path, a well stocked original garden area with pond and arches to the side of the house, a magnolia garden with several species of the plant, a tree garden with specimen trees from around the world, many of which are quite uncommon, and over 200 roses, some in colour themed beds, others climbing over a long pergola or up other trees.

There is also a greenhouse, a raised Koi Carp pond and a metal stairway leading to a roof based viewing platform surrounded by more roses. The garden continues to evolve and a Japanese garden is next planned.

The garden opens from 3 until 7pm. Admission is £6.00 and children enter for free.
