You may notice the Open Gardens posters and banners around town! All we need now is perfect weather. We are excited to be in the final stages of planning this bi-annual event which will benefit Wymondham Heritage Society and Museum. We are hoping to raise even more to protect the heritage and history of our town.

Dates for your diary are Saturday 1st and Sunday 2nd June from 12 noon-5pm.

Twenty-four Wymondham gardens will be open and this is your chance to take a peek behind the garden gate. With a big variety of garden styles on show there’ll be something for both the experienced gardener and beginners alike - a great way of seeing how varied gardens can be, depending on the site and location, within the limitations of time, space and expertise you have. For beginners it can be a chance to make early decisions on a new garden design or planting plan. For the more experienced there will be discussions about specific plants and experiences. Most of us fall somewhere in between and enjoy sharing ideas, appreciating beautiful gardens and compliments. Open Gardens Weekend can provide inspiration to us all.

Most visitors and participants are not gardening experts but enthusiasts and it’s really not a competition!

Programmes cost £5 per adult (children free) for access to all gardens for the weekend and are on sale during May at Wymondham Heritage Museum (cash or card) Wymondham Abbey Shop (cash or card), and by cash only from Tourist Information Centre, George Reeves, Marmalade Tree and Wymondham Garden Centre as well as our stall at the Friday Markets (17th, 24th and 31st May) and Saturday Farmer's Market (18th). During the event you can also purchase programmes on the Sunday (2nd June) at the Market Cross or from the gardeners themselves identified by yellow balloons. Do buy early if you can.

Each programme entitles the bearer to free entry to the Museum over the event weekend and this year will be extended to one occasion before the end of the season, an opportunity to see the museum at leisure. Come visit the Bridewell garden and enjoy a cream tea.

We look forward to welcoming you and say a big thank you in advance to all our participating gardeners as well as Wymondham Garden Centre who have generously sponsored our printing and publicity!
