Festival events for 2015

The Prelude and Main Festival for Spring 2014 is now completed with very good results. 

Lots of happy visitors; some new, some who have been before many times. All in all a successful Festival with the weather being kind and the roses wonderful.

Now beginning to plan for 2015 with the dates for gardens opening for the Festival being:

Autumn: First weekend of May, i.e. 2, 3 May



Prelude: second weekend of October, i.e. 10, 11 October

Main Festival: first weekend of November with the two days in front,

i.e. Thursday 5 to Sunday 8 November

Summer favourites

Agapanthus and hydrangeas


From mid, late November the stars of summer in the garden show their cool side with their blue and pale lilac coloured flowers.

The Festival logo is a flower-filled wheelbarrow. Here is a variation on this theme with a tipped over barrow resplendent with probably begonias.  Taken on one of the Channel Islands off Britain by one of our members.

Do you have a garden that you would like to open for the Festival in the inland South West, somewhere between Donnybrook and Pemberton? Contact us.
