The garden is always cold in winter and invariably muddy, so winter attire is a must. The garden is designed to be wheelchair friendly with good access around the house but the ground may be soft further away.
Plants, home-made jams and chutney will be on sale. Hot drinks, soup and cakes will be available at the "Pembury Cafe".
Admission for adults in 2015 is £5.00. Children free. Dogs on leads free.
We would like to thank everybody who came to our garden in February and March 2014. Visitor numbers were hit by the wettest winter on record in the UK but the mild weather produced one of our best ever displays of snowdrops and hellebores. We had over 900 adult visitors, 49 children and 21 dogs. We were able to send off £8700 to the NGS.
Since our first opening in 1992 we have had 16,000 visitors and raised over £85,000. Will we reach our target of £100K with our last opening in 2015?
