Imagine the pleasure of sitting in a small walled garden with a cup of tea and perhaps a piece of cake. Without moving far, being able to look over the tiny vegetable and fruit patch and admiring the mass of bee-friendly flowers. Just think Geoff Hamilton and squeezing as many plants into the limited space as it is possible. What a wonderful picture!

This is just one of the gardens on display this weekend in Tarvin. Over the afternoons of this Saturday and Sunday, a total of 10 gardens and William's Woodland are open for you to visit and explore. Every gardener has their own "style". The way that they choose to use their space will be quite different. Some gardens are full of annual flowers and perennials, while others prefer shrubs and trees. There is space for children to play, herbaceous borders, lawns (some manicured, some not) and experiments in permaculture. Each garden is unique which contributes to the joy of an afternoon like this. Gardeners know that they pick up ideas (knowingly or unknowingly) from the gardens of others, gradually developing and improving their own piece of land until they, too, are pleased with – and perhaps proud of – their garden.

These afternoons are fund-raisers for our two Churches and Tarvin Community Woodland. As Simon Harding of William's Wood has generously sponsored all of the entrance charges (his gift to the people of Tarvin), the fund-raising will be by means of the sale of teas, coffees and soft drinks, cakes and biscuits. These will be available in five of the gardens, with hot drinks for £1.50 and pieces of cake £2.50 Half of the gardens are mobility-friendly and five have toilets available.

Gardens will be open from 1.00pm to 5.00pm.Saturday, 8th July 2023 & Sunday, 9th July 2023.
