Here at St. Margaret’s Hospice we know how important our gardens are to the health and wellbeing of our patients and their families, providing places of relaxation as well as reflection.

For years our loyal supporters have been opening their gardens to raise funds for us. This year we have more than 30 amazing gardens to visit, including a village walkabout, allotment, arboretum, woodland walk and many stunning gardens with beautiful views.

There is something to interest everyone, including a specialist artist and photographers' day in Glastonbury. In addition, many gardens will be offering delicious cakes, scones and teas, or added extras such as children’s trails and book sales.

We hope you enjoy the summer of 2018, getting out and about and enjoying these wonderful gardens.

Thank you to all our garden owners and volunteers. We are so grateful to you for dedicating your time, and of course your gardens, for St. Margaret’s. Together we can make each day count for patients and their families facing a life-limiting illness across Somerset.
