Opening of Lymington Gardens for St Barbe’s Museum and Art Gallery
The GARDENERS of Lymington will open their doors to visitors in aid of the town’s St Barbe Museum and Art Gallery.
On Sunday, May 29, from 2-6 p.m., visitors will be invited to visit 14 properties, ranging from small courtyards on the main street to expansive lawned gardens.
The last Open Gardens Day in the city was in 2019, when over 800 tickets were sold, raising £6,000 for the museum and its work.
A St Barbe spokesperson said: “On the high street there is one of Lymington’s original town gardens while nearby another provides an oasis of calm.
“In one garden you can see what may be England’s oldest plane tree, while another is home to a magnificent scarlet oak tree.
“Whether you are a plant lover or are interested in garden design and layout, or simply appreciate the beauty of the garden, you are bound to find a garden to your liking. And the owners of the garden will be there for you. ready to answer your questions.”
Admission to the gardens is by program, costing £7.50 per adult. Shop throughout May at St Barbe’s in New Street and from 2pm on May 29 at any of the participating gardens.
