Visitors can explore the garden of Andrew Roberts and Dru Yarwood at School Gardens, Hook-a-Gate, near Shrewsbury.

Organisers of the open gardens scheme describe the garden as “delights and surprises at every turn. There is interest as soon as you enter the property, from little nooks and crannies to fabulous views towards Wales.”

Andrew and Dru care for the three acres of land which boast a combination of sunken garden, borders galore and numerous water features.

There are woodland walks and specimen trees as well as a vegetable plot and fruit trees and shrubs.

Vsitors may also catch a glimpse of the pigs and chicken that Andrew and Dru have.

The three acres are on an incline and so good footwear should be worn.
