Bonchurch Open Gardens weekend will be running this year Saturday 10th and Sunday 11th July 1-5pm by kind permission of the garden owners.

This is a lovely inclusive occasion which brings together 14 Bonchurch individual village gardens – some key favourites as well as interesting new gardens. It is a special opportunity to catch a glimpse of what lies behind the garden walls of one of the islands most delightful and charming villages. There will be plants on sale from an established plantsman as well as a few of the gardeners selling cuttings from some of their favourite plants.

In 2019 Bonchurch Village won the first prize for Best Kept Village and this event is a great opportunity to view the village at its best.

Last year due to the pandemic Bonchurch Open Gardens Weekend could only be held online so the Bonchurch Community Association who host the weekend to raise funds for the village are hoping this will be one of their best ones yet!

Entry to all the gardens is £5 .Simply buy a programme with map included at any of the gardens or at the hub at the pond and then follow the tour. The programme gives you entry to all the other gardens which can be viewed over two days.

Strawberry Cream Teas will be on sale by the Bonchurch Pond (until 5.30pm) and there is a free shuttle bus running between Leeson Road and Shore Road to assist you when travelling between gardens. The bus can be hailed at any safe stopping point en route.Covid restrictions will be in place throughout the event.

Bonchurch Open Gardens and the village community look forward to welcoming you!
