Report from Netherbury 2013
We look at how the Netherbury Open Gardens weekend got on after our earlier preview.
It was an amazing weekend in Netherbury, West Dorset, during the weekend of 8th & 9th June. The weather was perfect for wandering around gardens and through the village with over 940 people enjoying the atmosphere – and the hospitality.  Lunches and teas were consumed in huge quantities, wine and cider a little more moderately; nearly all the plants for sale on the plant tables were bought and the bottle tombola did a roaring trade!

Event organiser, Anne Peck commented "My heartfelt thanks and many congratulations to all those who worked so hard to make it a wonderful weekend for everyone who came. It was also a magnificent success". The total sum raised was £9287.00 for distribution to St Mary’s Church and other local causes.  

The Gardening Times would like to hear about any other towns or villages who organise open garden events, they are a great way to meet lots of people and share our interest in all things gardening, email any details to:
