First open gardens event for village of Liss

Liss Community Association is delighted to announce its first Open Gardens event which will take place on Sunday, June 25, from 11am – 5pm.

Nineteen gardens will be open across the village and visitors will be able to hop on and off a dedicated shuttle bus, which will be on hand all day, to ensure they get to visit all of the beautiful gardens.  The Triangle Centre will be open and serving  refreshments including sandwiches, homemade cakes, hot and cold drinks and Pimm’s.

You can stroll around in large formal gardens with wide sweeping lawns or enjoy smaller gardens bustling with ideas and inspiration for your own garden. Riverside locations, cottage gardens, ponds, formal vegetable and herb gardens, rose gardens and beautiful terraced lawns are open to discover.

The children of Liss are encouraged to get involved with this event and have been invited to design their own mini garden in a tub/container of their choice. The gardens should be brought down to the Triangle Centre by 11am on June 25, where they will be judged by members of the Horticultural Society.  The gardens will then be on display for all of the visitors to admire at The Triangle.  Local gardening celebrity Peter Catt will be conducting the official opening ceremony and be on hand to answer any gardening questions.

Programmes cost £5 and will be available from The Triangle Centre from the end of May, along with shuttle bus tickets which cost £2.
