The Secret Garden Salisbury

The Secret Garden Salisbury is run by the lovely Rebecca Twigg.

This wildlife sanctuary was set up as an oasis in the old city’s churchyard, as a place for people to connect with nature in a previously unnoticed space.

For more information and to plan your visit, take a look at the Secret Garden Salisbury website.

But why are we writing about them here at Modern Mint? Well, on the first day of Salisbury Christmas Market, Rebecca visited our chalet and spoke with Chloe.

Later that night, we saw what she wrote about us (unbeknownst) on Facebook – the most glowing review you can imagine of Modern Mint….

Here is one of the photos she took:

Thank you Rebecca, for the perfect start to our Christmas season in Salisbury! Good luck with the garden for 2017!
