A Blooming Big Weekend for Gardens in Budleigh

Over the weekend of the 25th and 26th June there is a treat in store for garden lovers.  As part of the Open Gardens charity fundraiser for Hospiscare, 13 Budleigh Salterton residents have got together for an Open Gardens extravaganza!

For this weekend only, you can pay £7 for a weekend pass which will allow you entry to all 13 gardens on both Saturday and Sunday.  Or you can pay per visit, for only £2.50

You will enjoy a wide variety of flora and fauna with gardens like Roundhill, created in 1929 by a retired rubber planter.  Roundhill has eccentric features like a huge bamboo grove, a tiny island, an amphitheatre and ingenious rain catcher.

There are also smaller urban gardens on show, and you can get tips on growing award winning veg from the winner of Best Vegetable Garden 2013, 2014 and 2015 and Best Garden Overall 2015. 

Refreshments are available at many of the venues and you can pick up a map to guide you round all 13 beautiful gardens. So join in this “one weekend only” event and enjoy a day visiting some of Budleigh’s finest gardens, while raising much needed funds for Hospiscare.
