THE landscaper behind the award-winning garden Romancing the Stone will throw open the gates for a garden, art and craft show later this month.

Tom Hogg said all proceeds of the event would go towards building extensions for the St Francis of Assisi Church in Maida Vale.

“I will be giving a free garden tour explaining to people how I developed this unique garden over the past 17 years,” he said.

“There will also be an art exhibition by acclaimed florist artist Robyn Lowry, Devonshire teas, soup, preserves as well as art, craft, jewellery and book stalls.”

Mr Hogg said the newly constructed Fairyville and the Enchanted Woods would be especially loved by children visiting the garden.
