Open Gardens

Sunday 6th June 2021

Come Join Us

We’re delighted to announce that our ever-popular Open Gardens event will be held once again. Come and join us for a very special afternoon in our lovely village where you can experience 9 beautiful and unique gardens that are sure to inspire and delight.

We have 3 new gardens on show this year so even regular attendees should find something new to experience.

For the kids there is a free “garden treasure” challenge and “goodie bags” to take home.

Tea and cakes will be available at Meadowbrook and Ashley Manor as well as a free shuttle bus from the Village Hall.

There will be a Plant Stand at the village hall with a great selection of plants and shrubs at bargain prices.

COVID19: For the safety and comfort of our visitors and volunteers all of the gardens will be fully risk assessed and each venue will be marshalled to ensure compliance with applicable Covid19 conditions and restrictions.

If you’d like to open your garden (front or back) for this year’s event, we’d love to hear from you. We welcome all gardens so why not feature yours?

Now’s the time to sow seeds and make cuttings so we’d really appreciate any donations of surplus plants you might produce for our plant stall.

We’d also love to hear from anyone who’d like to volunteer on the day.

Health & Safety Notice

Please note that the only dogs allowed in gardens are official guide dogs for the blind.

These are private gardens and while every effort has been made to make sure they are safe we expect every visitor to take care on paths and walkways to ensure their own safety.

Unfortunately we cannot say for sure that any garden is suitable for a wheelchair or large walking aids but some are easier than others. Please ask if you need advice.

Children should be supervised at all times and remain the full responsibility of parents and carers.

Please take care while walking from one garden to another when crossing roads, especially near the sharp bend on the Romsey Road.

Look after your own valuables. The open garden organisers cannot be responsible for any losses.

The shuttle bus services will drop off and pick up at every garden so if possible please leave your car at the recreation grounds and enjoy your visit!
