Open Gardens returns this summer!

This year, we are delighted that our ever-popular horticultural event will celebrate its 25th anniversary! Open Gardens 2019 will once again take place throughout the summer season, from mid-May to mid-August. Green-fingered fans of the event will be able to enjoy an entire three-month season of visiting more than 20 gardens that will be opening for the Hospice.

The first Open Garden is being held on Saturday 18th May and the last is on the Sunday 18th August. Unless stated, gardens are open from 10.30am to 5pm.

Check out our Open Gardens event listings and map below to decide where you want to go! You can also pick up our FREE Open Gardens brochure, with the full list of gardens and dates, in any of our nine shops or at the Hospice reception.

This year, entry to the gardens is payable on the gate. Entry starts from £3 per garden, or group of gardens.  Many of the gardens will have refreshments, plants and cakes on sale – so it is the perfect day out this summer!
