Midsummer open gardens

At our  February meeting  we  discussed  the outline information for posters/fliers and publicity.  We haven't quite finalised our two charities for 2015 but are well on  the  way,  concentrating  on local charities where the money we raise can make a real difference.

The gardens  weekend  will be a Midsummer opening on   Saturday 20th and Sunday 21st June  -  five gardens will be open on each day from 2.00pm until 5.00pm; with a total of seven gardens opening. One change this year, to help with the flow of visitors,  you can buy your map and start  in any one of the open gardens on Whin Hill Rd.  Last year there was rather a rush at number 2 at 2 o'clock.

There will be home made teas, plants for sale,  a raffle and tombola.

It is hoped this blog will become a source of information for visitors,  with gardeners writing about their gardens as we prepare to open and maybe posting some photographs to encourage you to visit over the Midsummer weekend.

We look forward to seeing you in June.
