Kentisbury Gardens will be open for viewing on 22nd June 2014 with proceeds in part going to Devon Air Ambulance Trust. Eleven gardens of diverse quality are situated in Central Kentisbury, Kentisbury Ford, and Patchole.
‘Extravagant’ might be the encompassing word to describe these gardens. Orchards, natural grasslands, ponds, streams, vegetable patches, shrubs, azaleas, rhododendrons, various perennials and much more are all on view at this event. Some gardens include plant sales along with other gift purchases, and certain sites will also serve Cream Teas. There is something for everyone who appreciates a gorgeous floral selection at these gardens.
Nerys Cadvan-Jones, one of the organisers of the Kentisbury Open Gardens, cites her Mum as the inspiration to give back to Devon Air Ambulance Trust, “My Mum suggested the Charity, and since she is the ‘Head Gardener’ and a big contributor to the village plant sales, her input matters most! She is absolutely delighted that we are raising funds for the Charity this year”.
These lavish gardens will be open from noon to 5pm and admission is £5. Dogs are welcome on leads and there is disabled access as well.
Caroline Creer, Fundraising Director of Devon Air Ambulance Trust says, “We would like to thank all involved in the Kentisbury Gardens for creating something visually stunning while also raising funds for the Charity. We encourage everyone to spend some time relaxing and viewing the hard work of these gardeners”.
