A heather and alpine rockery surrounds a large pond with fountain and koi carp. A walled apple orchard. Birds and squirrels enjoy open grassy areas, shrub cover and trees.
Sunday 19 June 2011 will be the quarter centenary of this popular and exciting garden event. Do come!
You will be surprised at what lies behind the garden walls of our delightful town streets; the diversity of plots and planting; the willingness of gardeners to welcome you. There will be 30+ gardens on show at venues within the town centre. As usual, there will be refreshments offered and plants to buy at some gardens and from our very popular Pennycross Plants nursery stall.
A suggested walking route is provided with your programme or you can choose from brief descriptions your own ‘must see’ gardens.Come and find gardens old and new, large and small, showy and loved, all providing ideas for your own patch and together making a delightful walk round our lovely town.
Well over 2000 visitors come each year. Be one of them for our 25th in 2011 and add to your collection of ‘Hidden Gardens’ distinctive lapel stickers, free!
All proceeds go to St Nicholas Hospice Care.
