From Sunday 23rd May until September, Turn End Trust is offering people a monthly opportunity to visit the Grade II listed garden at Turn End on Garden Sundays, 2-5pm.
Future dates are: 20th June, 18th July, 15th August and 19th September.
Organisers write "The garden is a jewel box of colours in mid May. The last tulips and peonies can still be flowering, and early roses beginning to bloom. Stars of the May garden are the bearded irises, with their showy, velvety flowers. Our beautifully scented wisteria may also be coming into bloom and our tender plants will be out on display."
This event is subject to Covid-19 national guidelines so please book a timeslot in order to stagger admissions.
With limited ticket numbers, enjoy the quiet seclusion of the garden and the dappled shady areas. Perhaps bring a book or take time to explore the fascinating, variously-planted borders.
Admission is £5 (Friends: free, children aged 5-16 years: £2.50, under-5s: free). Book online here.
