Longparish Garden Festival

Please note
This event ran in 2017 but we don't yet have this year's details. When we get them, we'll add them, but in the meantime we include below event information from last year to remind you about the event.

 approx 14 gardens opened Longparish, east of Andover, Hampshire
Saturday 8th and Sunday 9th July 2017
1.00pm to 5.00pm

For the first time since 2005, gardens will be open in the pretty village of Longparish set in the rural Test Valley. Gardens will range from the small but beautiful, through to others that are large and impressive. Several gardens border the Test river which is world famous for its trout fishing.

There is also the rare opportunity to visit the impressive fifteen acre Lower Mill garden on the sparkling river Test. The magnificent trees and water are keys to the largely informally planted garden. Teardrop shaped beds are boldly planted with shrubs and under planted with swathes of grasses and perennials that give striking foliage combinations. Harmonious planting around the Arts and Crafts house lead to a hidden sunken garden which is a peaceful formal area in contrast to much of the grounds.

Visitors will experience plenty to delight in all of the gardens.

Light refreshments and teas will be on sale at the village hall from 12.30pm, where local artists will also display their work.

The Festival will raise funds for alterations to our village church, St. Nicholas, which dates back to the 12th century, and also the village hall.

Plant sales

6.00 adults covers both days, accompanied under 16s free.
