TWO town gardens will be open this Sunday, July 3, for the first time as part of the National Garden Scheme.
The first is the country-style garden at Hope House, home of Sue Neve.
It has a small walled garden attached to an interesting Georgian house, with climbing roses, perennials, shrubs, trees, fruit and a small raised vegetable area.
A wildlife pond and formal water trough feature in the dining area and the garden has all round colour and interest in a tranquil space.
In contrast, Ramada, home of Peter and Gwen Thompson, has a hillside garden, with terraced herbaceous borders filled with perennials, a vegetable garden, a natural spring and a small pond.
Both gardens are in Horsemarket and will be open from 1.30pm to 5pm.
Combined admission is £3, with children free.
Home-made teas will be available at Hope House and plants will be on sale.
The National Gardens Scheme raises over £2 million every year for national nursing, gardening and other charitable causes.
