From 2nd June until 21st July you can browse some of the most impressive, well-tended and relaxing gardens in Surrey and Hampshire, with Phyllis Tuckwell’s Open Gardens event, which is proudly supported by Squire’s Garden Centres.
Residents across Phyllis Tuckwell’s catchment area of West Surrey & North East Hampshire are opening their gardens to raise money to support the care that Phyllis Tuckwell offers patients and families who are living with an advanced or terminal illness, such as cancer.
Gardens of many different shapes, sizes and designs will be on display across Guildford, Farnham, Binstead, Tilford, Dockenfield and Liphook. For a small fee visitors are invited to wander around them, enjoying the peaceful atmosphere of each and maybe taking away a few ideas to try out on their own green spaces at home.
Sarah Squire, Chairman of Squire’s Garden Centres commented, “We are so pleased to support Phyllis Tuckwell’s Open Gardens event. This is a lovely opportunity to appreciate the beauty of local gardens and pick up inspiration to take home. I hope that many people will come and visit some of the stunning gardens in our area to raise money for this important local service.”
“We are delighted to be partnering with Squires Garden Centres for our 2019 Open Gardens,” said Charli Quay-Barnham, Community Fundraising Manager at Phyllis Tuckwell. “All of the gardens involved in this event are listed in our Open Gardens brochure, copies of which are available at www.pth.org.uk/open-gardens, or you can pick one up at any Phyllis Tuckwell shop.”
Many of the Open Gardens locations are partly wheelchair-friendly and some welcome well-behaved dogs on leads. You can buy refreshments at many of them, and some will also be selling plants. Visit www.pth.org.uk/open-gardens for more details.
