Leigh Open Gardens

Please note
This event rested in 2017 so we don't have any recent event details. When we get updated information, we'll add it here, but in the meantime we include below event information from a previous year to remind you about the event.

 approx 13 gardens opened Leigh, near Sherborne, Dorset
Saturday 20th and Sunday 21st June 2015
2.00pm 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 shared between Scope Thorngrove Garden Centre and our village garden club.
