Open Gardens

Our Open Gardens programme is back in bloom for 2015.

Open Gardens allows keen gardeners to share their passion, while helping people in crisis. Meanwhile, you can go along for a nosey - and maybe get a cup of tea and slice of cake. Other gardens go even further and offer cream teas, light lunches, plant sales, treasure trails and more.

From March until September, you can visit gardens all over the country – including some never seen before by the public.
