Gardens in Bournville will once again open up to the public this year as part of a national fundraising event.

Visitors are being offered the chance to take a rare peek behind some of the village’s most beautiful gardens in July to help raise money for some of the country’s best-loved nursing and caring charities

Six of the village’s finest gardens will open to the public on Sunday 8th July as part of the National Garden Scheme (NGS), which has raised £45m for good causes since 1927.

This year you can visit:

  • 40 Middle Park Road – Densely planted with bulbs, perennials, shrubs and annuals for all-year interest, bordering one of Bournville’s spinneys.
  • 103 Bournville Lane – Shrubs, perennials, vegetables and fruit in containers, greenhouse, small pond and waterfall and eclectic curios.
  • 143 Oak Farm Road – Jungle meets cottage style.
  • 19 Green Meadow Road – North-facing and informal.
  • 82 Hay Green Lane – A bit of  fun!
  • 32 Knighton Road – Once-overgrown and now restored urban cottage garden.

Combined NGS admission is £6 for adults and children go free.

Home-made teas will be available at various locations and gardens can be visited in any order.  A free map/ garden guide will be available on the day at all locations.

Full details can be found by searching the Internet for “NGS Bournville” or by visiting the NGS website www.ngs.org.uk

We are currently looking for gardens to open in 2019.
