Chance to wander around gardens
Published at 12:00, Tuesday, 31 May 2011
FOURTEEN private gardens in Grange will be opened for people to admire.
The town’s popular Open Gardens Day, which is held every other year, will take place on June 12 between 11am and 5pm.
Two award-winning gardens will be open to wander in – Jonathan Denby’s Yewbarrow House and Graythwaite Manor Hotel.
Teas, light refreshments and plants will be available to buy at some gardens.
There will also be plant sales at some of the properties.
Funds raised from the event will support Grange’s entry into Britain in Bloom.
Jan Tomlinson, secretary of the Grange in Bloom group, said: “It’s an opportunity to visit gardens not normally open to the public.
“It’s just a good fun day out.
“There are some large and some smaller ones with some interesting features.
“In Grange there are a lot of gardens with big limestone features, because that’s what Grange is built on. Everybody’s garden is different, so it’s interesting to see how different people tackle their gardens.”
Advance tickets can be bought from the tourist information centre in Victoria Hall.
Tickets will also be available on the day from participating gardens or the TIC.
Admission is £5 on the day or £4 in advance.
