Harris HospisCare Open Gardens Festival 2010 begins on 23rd May at 10 Homestead Road, Chelsfield Park, Orpington.

The first garden to open for the Open Gardens Festival is an established three-quarter acre garden laid out in a series of interlinked areas including a circular lawn, pond, natural woodland, exotic garden and wild flower meadow. Planted with emphasis on form and foliage for a year-round interest, there are numerous places to sit and enjoy light refreshments.
Experiencing The Open Garden’s Festival 2010 will give the public a rare opportunity to explore the secrets of gardens not usually open to public view, as well as an opportunity to buy plants and purchase more raffle tickets for our Grand Summer Raffle. This is a great series of events to attend.
Fundraising Assistant, Marlon Burton said: “Our hosts for the Open Gardens Festival are really putting their heart and soul into making the festival truly special – with new gardens to look at and the return of some our old favourites, makes this a really great year.”
Visitors of all ages are welcome to both events. Entrance to the gardens is a £3 minimum donation or as advertised.
For more details, or to donate plants to the Plant Sale, please contact Marlon Burton on 01689 825755 or email or visit
