Wivenhoe Open Gardens

 approx 24 gardens open Wivenhoe, near Colchester, Essex
Saturday 19th and Sunday 20th May 2018
11.00am to 5.00pm

Wivenhoe Open Gardens is a popular summer event in this village-like town, set on the River Colne in north-east Essex.

Gardens large and small will be open, demonstrating the range of terrain from woodland to waterside, and the ingenuity of the gardeners. Several new gardens are opening this year.

Teas, other refreshments, and displays of arts and crafts can be enjoyed in some of the gardens; there will be a cake and produce stall, and the church will be open for teas too, with books and puzzles for sale on both days.

This is one of the early Open Gardens weekends, so start your summer in Wivenhoe!

Proceeds are shared between St Mary's Church and local causes chosen each year by The Wivenhoe Society.
