With our gardeners covering so many beautiful towns and villages in the South, we thought it would be great to take a closer look at some special days out in a selection of areas. We start with the beautiful historic town of Farnham, located in the borough of Waverley, Surrey- which boasts a castle, beautiful Georgian architecture, and a host of wonderful gardens to boot.
