Cancelled: Open Gardens 2023

Open Gardens Festival 16 July 2023 Cancelled

I'm sorry to inform you that this summer's Open Gardens event has sadly been cancelled due to there being too few offers of gardens to visit. One explanation for this may be the serious damage done in December by 10 days of the temperature being 14 degrees below zero. This has been compounded by the subsequent wet spring followed by the current period of hot and dry weather. If you have a lovely garden and would like to help ensure the Open Gardens event takes place next year please contact Gordon Gray.
