Didsbury Open Gardens 2018, Sunday 17th June

The delights of some of Didsbury’s most beautiful private gardens will be on show as part of this Didsbury Open Gardens scheme on Sunday, 17 June.

Some of South Manchester’s greenest fingers have been hard at work with more than 20 gardens – traditional and modern, large and small – opening to the public.

Wild birds, willow-sculpted hares, a teddy bears’ picnic, live music and tea and cakes are among the treats on offer.

Didsbury Open Gardens will also include an art trail with willow weavings created by local artist Juliette Hamilton and the chance to meet owls and birds of prey from Wild Wings bird sanctuary.

Among the gardens on display will be Maggie’s Centre, designed by Chelsea Flower Show winner, Dan Pearson.

The event, founded in 2008 by community champion, Maria Stripling, has raised more than £50,000 for local charities. Proceeds from this year’s Open Gardens will go to St Ann’s Hospice and Didsbury Good Neighbours.

Maria Stripling said: ‘‘As always, we’re looking forward to a great day out, meeting old friends and welcoming new visitors. This year there are some new gardens on show as well as old favourites, with plenty to suit all tastes, along with the chance to see some fantastic artworks in beautiful settings.

‘‘Do join us for this wonderful community event and help raise much-needed funds for some really deserving local causes.’’

For entry to all the gardens, pick up a programme costing £5 from the following local venues: Fusion Deli (Lapwing Lane); The Cheese Hamlet (Didsbury village); the Holt Pavilion Café (Didsbury Park). Tickets are also available on the day from Broomcroft Hall, Ford Lane, Didsbury.
