We have just been advised by the Phyllis Tuckwell Hospice that they are holding their second Open Gardens Campaign in 2019.
As well as hoping for a good turnout of visitors to the gardens though the summer they are currently looking for garden owners who would be interested in opening their gardens. Gardens need only be open for a few hours to the public on a day of their choosing from May-September to help raise money for their charity. (If individuals would prefer not to open publicly but would like to hold a private ‘garden party’ with friends and family we would also welcome them as part of our overall open gardens campaign.)
So, if you like gardens or gardening why not join in and have a few enjoyable hours this summer?
