OPEN WEEKEND 2018



It's that time of year again when our group of  enthusiastic gardeners in  Bessacarr open our gardens for charity.  We love the event which this year is better than ever.

We are open the weekend of 23/24th June 2018 from 1pm until 5pm  If you don't know us I suggest you start on Whin Hill Rd,  DN4 7AF

We have decided this year to sell weekend tickets as all 8 gardens are open both Saturday and Sunday .  Tickets are £5 for adults and children are free, this entitles you to visit on both days.

There will be delicious home made teas, a great raffle,  a tombola, guess the Teddy bear's name, a home produce stall  and  a children's treasure hunt (£2  ; guaranteed prize)

We only donate to charities local to Doncaster and this year our charities are Caring in Doncaster, Donmentia and Doncaster Foodbank.

Last year  we  raised over £4,000 and have, year on year, exceeded our last years total - can we do it this year with your help?

We are all slightly bonkers about our gardens and some of us have spent the last year undergoing quite major improvements; so even if you have come before there is always something new and new plants to look at. I know at No 2 a very large conifer has been taken down allowing the Acer garden to be more visible  and a new bed planted up. On Ellers Drive a new stream has  appeared and at No17 the grass continues to be dung up to make way for more plants....


We are indebted to Graham Bodle of Walkers Nursery for the fantastic support we have received over the years from this local,  family run company.
