ASHWOOD Nurseries' owner John Massey will be opening his private canal-side garden for charity this weekend.

The spring open day, in aid of WINGS (Wombourne Special Needs Support Group), will take place on Saturday March 17 from 10am to 4pm.

Mr Massey's three-acre garden features an abundance of rare plants as well as familiar favourites and comprises informal borders, island beds, woodland dells and a wildlife meadow.

Entry is £5 (cash only).

All proceeds will go to WINGS - the garden centre's charity of the year.

The garden is located at Ashwood Nurseries, Ashwood Lower Lane, Kingswinford.
