Gardens will open across Didsbury, of all designs and sizes with a mix of public and private gardens, including eight new to our event this year.
In addition to admiring the planting schemes, there are teas and cakes, a Birds of Prey display with several beautiful owls, and willow weaving, both at Broomcroft Hall.
Live classical music and some mega busking, both for charity, can be enjoyed in two of the gardens. Pottery and plant sales, tours of the local allotments and a local Alpine House and a Teddy Bear picnic, plus an Arts Trail in several gardens, including the local Maggie's Centre and its garden, designed by Dan Pearson.
Proceeds from programme sales to St Ann's Hospice. Some donations to charities by the individual gardens from sales of teas, pottery or plants.
Plant sales: Plant sales at various gardens.
Cost: £5.00 per adult, accompanied under 12s free.
How to get event passports: On sale at The Holt Pavilion Cafe in Didsbury Park, The Cheese Hamlet in the village, and Fusion Deli on Lapwing Lane from early May. Some will be available on the day at Broomcroft Hall on Ford Lane.
