Hampshire Open Gardens: Swanmore

Past event 1-6PM Saturday 18 - Sunday 19 June 2016

Patterson Centre, Church Road, Swanmore, SOUTHAMPTON, SO32 2PA

Open gardenPlant sale

After a miserable wet winter we look forward to June (18/19th) when our roses will be sensational and July (30/31st) when everything will be in full swing. We anticipate 7-10 gardens opening each day with 15 different gardens in all. The gardens vary from small intimate village gardens to large country house gardens. Amongst our old favourites we have one or two that have not opened recently and all have, of course, changed as the years have passed. Many of the gardens are within easy walking distance of the village centre. All could be visited with a round trip of 3 miles starting and ending at The Paterson Centre, where you will find Barnaby’s our coffee shop which will be selling speciality teas and coffees as well as delicious homemade cakes.
