Tickenham Open Gardens

Our first Open  Gardens day on 23 June 2019 was a huge success with over 400 visitors enjoying the gardens, plant sales and refreshments.  In fact it was such a success that we decided to do it again!  Then came the coronavirus and sadly our Open Gardens 2020 had to be cancelled.

The organising group met recently (virtually of course) and decided that 2021 was still uncertain, so the next Open Gardens in Tickenham will be in 2022. The reserved dates are 26th June and 3rd July.   We will be back with a bigger and better event  – there may even be a mini-bus to take you to drop-off points along the way!  In the meantime do note the provisional optional dates in your diaries: that’s – SUNDAY 26th JUNE or SUNDAY 3rd JULY 2022.    We will confirm which date as soon as possible so watch this space for more details.
