Open Gardens Exciting update – Garden Safari Sunday 8th June 6:00 PM

The Open Gardens Team now have 16 gardens/ plots/ growing spaces this year... Some people  have entered  again for the  2nd year running so it will be interesting to revisit  them a year on….There’s  some really  interesting new ones as well   including a market garden and a   hillside garden designed along himalayan hill farming  lines . 

For garden entries we will once again be organising a “ gardeners  safari “ the week before the main event   on Sunday 8th june.. We will  setting off from the Old Library at 6pm  to give everyone who has  entered  the opportunity to  visit each others gardens and  meet each other / ask questions etc  . There will be  some walking involved  as we plan to  start at the Portsmouth end of  in the village,  then walk up  Pudsey Clough then over to Shore via the allottments and back down  to  Frieldhurst rd  via Shore Chapel .

If anyone knows anyone  who could spare a couple of hours on the day to help out with the plant stall or refreshments  at the Old Library then do  please ask them to get in touch  with Shirley Harris on 01706 810902. Also  please let us have any plant donations  on or before the day as  we use the proceeds from the plant stall  to pay for the cost of printing the  garden trail  maps  and  everyone seemed to think it was  worth doing  again judging by  the success of last years  stall.  That’s all for now …. fingers  x’d  for some good gardening  weather from now on and  see you all soon ……the Open Gardens team
