Sproxton Open Gardens Day

This event is resting for 2017
Sorry, but Sproxton Open Gardens Day isn't running this year. We'll keep you posted about next year's event details when they are known, but in the meantime we include below details from a previous year to remind you about the event

 approx 8 gardens opened Sproxton, near Melton Mowbray, Leicestershire
Sunday 3rd July 2016
11.00am to 4.00pm

A selection of gardens within the village will be open. Some gardens owners' descriptions:

"A small garden stuffed with too many cottage garden plants. Not an inch of soil to be seen. With a lawn that decreases in size annually as I make space for more plants. Far from perfect, but I love it."

"A Traditional English Cottage Garden with borders of old-fashioned perennials and roses. Vegetable garden with fruit bushes and bank of wild flowers on far side of paddock."

"Lawn, assorted shrubs and perennials and mature trees. Developing wild flower area, patio and wall with assorted containers. Centred around a old pan-tiled potting shed. A work in progress."

There will be produce and plant stalls, refreshments, competitions and games and children's activities at the Village Hall as well as a treasure trail around the gardens.

All proceeds split between the Village Hall and the Church funds.

Plant sales:
Plants available for sale at the village hall.

Cost:
2.50 adults, accompanied children free.

Directions:
For anyone planning on visiting from the Nottingham direction, note that the Waltham - Sproxton road is due to be closed at Stonesby for roadworks. Your best bet is to use the A607 to Croxton Kerrial and come down through Saltby. Visitors from Melton can use the B676 instead.
