Putley Open Gardens Saturday May 12, 2018 12 noon until 5.30pm
Six glorious gardens in the idyllic Herefordshire village of Putley.
There’s the chance to explore a garden laid out in the 1920s, with its stunning rhododendrons and azaleas; a lovingly-tended cottage garden; a beautifully laid-out quarter-acre plot with themed borders; gardens with a proliferation of roses, wisteria and clematis and some with their deliberate “wild” corners with bluebells and cowslips. Putley is surrounded by orchards, so an additional treat may well be the sight of the cider apple trees covered in a marvellous mass of pink blossom.
Visitors to Putley Open Gardens are also encouraged to explore delightfully-situated Putley Church and its carefully tended churchyard. The gardens and church are accessible by well-marked footpaths through orchards and pastures.
The event is being held to support the upkeep of the Parish Hall and Church and everything starts (and finishes) at Putley Parish Hall, HR8 2QN, where there is car parking, tickets, teas, tombola and plant sales.
Gardens are open from 12 noon until 5.30pm; entrance is £5.00 per person; children under 15 are free.
Dogs are not allowed in the gardens.
