Keith said: "We have a regular 1930s semi in the Fleetville area of St Albans, but gardening is my wife Anastasia's passion, and we have quite a garden. We open under the National Garden Scheme, and the interesting thing about our garden is that it's regular and ordinary - we don't have a mansion or a million pound house - so what we have is accessible and achievable. It's a chance to come along and learn and be inspired and see what ideas you can take home.

"Morrisons are supporting us by providing food and stuff at no charge - which is lovely and will mean we'll be able to donate even more money. Last year, we raised over £4K for charities - now it's needed even more than ever."
