Spring delights at Turn End garden for the early May bank holiday

TET - Late Spring Walk

The spring garden in May

Garden Open Monday 2 May 2.00- 5.30pm

Tickets on the gate: Adults £4, children free

The gardens at Turn End will be open to explore on the afternoon on Monday 2 May to raise money for nursing and caring charities through the National Gardens Scheme.

Turn End has opened the gardens to support the NGS every May for many years. It is a lovely and fascinating time in the garden, always different every year. Borders are filling with fresh green leaves and lovely bursts of colour from late spring bulbs, flowering shrubs and early herbaceous perennials.

Delicious home made cakes and teas will be available throughout the afternoon, in support of Christian Aid. The studio of our Artist in Residence, Heather Hunter, will also be open to visit. Pop in to see Heather’s beautiful printing and artists’ books and maybe take home an original artwork. The studio of multi-award winning photographer Paul Wilkinson will also be open to visit. Meet the team and see Paul’s stunning portrait and wedding photographs.

A selection of greetings cards and home-grown plants will also be for sale, along with copies of ‘A Garden and Three Houses‘,the beautiful book that tells the story of Turn End.

All ticket proceeds are given to the National Gardens Scheme. Since its foundation, the scheme has donated over £45 million to its nominated beneficiaries. Beneficiaries include Macmillan Cancer Support, Marie Curie, Hospice UK, Carers Trust, Perennial, The Queen’s Nursing Institute and Parkinson’s UK. This year the NGS will be supporting two guest charities – MS Society and Horatio’s Garden.

Come and enjoy the garden and help us support the work of these amazing charities
