Bedminster's Secret Gardens on Saturday 15th & Sunday 16th June 2019Posted on: 12 Jun 2019
Bedminster's Secret Gardens, which will open up these splendid green spaces across the area takes place on Saturday 15th and Sunday 16th June 2019.
Green-fingered fans and horticultural enthusiasts will get a real kick out of the two-day event, which will see over 25 houses in and around Bedminster swing open their doors to reveal the stunning gardens which dwell within.
Small but perfectly formed, it's a chance for garden lovers and the city's wannabe Monty Dons to immerse themselves in green spaces otherwise out of sight to the general public. You'll be inspired and amazed at how the gardens have been maintained, with a myriad flora, fauna and perennials to feast the eyes and engage the creative mind.
The event will take place between 12pm and 5pm on both days. Tickets cost £2 per person and you'll get a sticker at the first garden to show you've paid, after which you can explore as many gardens as you like. Free maps and guides are available from Riverside Garden Centre and The Southville Centre, or can be downloaded here.
