Open Gardens 2017
It’s always a proud moment when your garden comes into full bloom and you can stand back and enjoy the results of your creativity and hard work. And there’s a special reward in being able to share your achievements with admiring visitors.
Hospice in the Weald is inviting you to open your gates for a day to gardening enthusiasts and share the delights of your garden and raise money for a great cause at the same time.
The Hospice’s Open Gardens brochure each year features a varied and enticing choice of gardens which this year brought in £25,000 for the charity. But the organisers would love to expand the range even further in 2017.
“It’s always exciting to see new gardens which the owners might never have considered putting on show,” said Pam Coleman, who runs the hospice’s Open Gardens scheme. “We’d love to be able to offer an even greater choice.”
There’s no limit to the style of garden that visitors might enjoy - small ones to inspire creativity, larger areas to explore, gardens for wildlife enthusiasts and interesting ideas for fruit and vegetable plots.
Pam says: “Gardens can be small, big or quirky as long as they are interesting and reflect the owners’ passion for gardening. We would like to invite gardeners to contact us this autumn ready for the next brochure. Owners need not be nervous about taking part – many who have done so often tell us how much pleasure they get from the comments and interest of enthusiastic visitors.
”And there’s the reward of knowing they are helping the Hospice’s drive to raise £7million a year to keep our vital services free for the patients who need them.”
