Leigh, near Sherborne, Dorset Saturday 9th June 2018 1.00pm to 5.00pm
The small, rural village of Leigh will have 13 gardens open over the weekend, including 4 new openers.
The gardens vary from about an acre in size with a ducks, geese and chickens, to a small plantsman's garden, packed full of carefully selected unusual plants. Orphan lambs are being raised in the corner of another and we have a very large garden being created from scratch.
The good folk of Cheltnole (our neighbouring village) will supply refreshments of wondrous cakes and tea in the village hall and a plant sale (all plants grown by villagers) will be held in one of the central gardens.
Please come and enjoy our hospitality and our views.
Proceeds to Future Roots Charity.
Plant sales: There will be a plant stall at ILES Farm (near to the stone cross).
Cost: £5.00 per person includes light refreshments.
How to get event passports: Tickets/guide available from the village hall from 1.45pm each day.
