Little Gardens of Sandwich, which regularly raises several thousand pounds, has been running for over 35 years and is one of the highlights of the town's summer calendar.
The allotments adjacent to St Clement’s Church will go on show alongside the glorious gardens of south east Sandwich at the annual ‘Little Gardens of Sandwich’ which this year takes place on Sunday, June 4.
For the first time in the 35-year history of the event, anyone interested in growing their own produce will have the chance to wander around the central Sandwich allotments, ask questions of the owners and hopefully be inspired to apply for their own little vegetable or fruit patch.
However the hundreds of garden-lovers who attend the ‘Little Gardens’ every year will not be disappointed either as eight very different gardens set behind ancient walls of this charming medieval town will also be open.
After visiting the gardens and allotments, cream teas will be available in the St Clement’s Church Hall whilst a number of specialist plant nurseries will be located in the churchyard displaying and selling a wide variety of perennials, annuals, shrubs and herbs. Visitors can also purchase charity raffle tickets for an array of garden-themed prizes
Kindly supported by local estate agents, Colebrook Sturrock, and SPC design & print, this year’s event will feature eight gardens, situated close to St Clement’s Church, which will be open from 2.00 to 5.00 pm.
On show are:
Tickets to gain entry into all of the gardens and the allotments are priced at £5 for adults whilst children go free whilst cream teas will be £3 each.
Tickets can be bought in advance from the Sandwich Tourist Office at the Guildhall and will be available on the day at each garden. All proceeds from the event go the upkeep of St Clement’s Church in Sandwich.
“The inclusion of the Sandwich allotments near St Clement’s Church will add extra interest to this edition of Little Gardens of Sandwich as will the opening of 8 Knightrider Street for the first time which is bursting with unusual tropical ferns,” comments Liz Watson, chairperson of the Little Gardens Committee.
“The eight gardens open this year once again offer a great variety of garden designs and feature both popular and unusual plant varieties whilst many of the ancient walls to the garden backdrops showcase the history and beauty of Sandwich.”
The Little Gardens of Sandwich, which raises several thousand pounds every year, is one of the highlights of the town’s summer calendar.
