“The more one gardens, the more one learns; and the more one learns, the more one realizes how little one knows.”

Vita Sackville-West (1892 – 1962)

Once again you have three days to explore and get inspiration from a wide variety of gardens and allotments in Frome, normally hidden from view. Frome’s industrial and social history means that round any corner is another surprising and inspiring garden. Linger and enjoy a cup of tea and perhaps a cake and chat to the gardener, who may be wearing a flower badge.

Entrance is with the Hidden Gardens guide and map (£5.00) available from the Cheese and Grain Box Office, the Tourist Information CentreLibrary before and during the Festival.

All proceeds from the guide go to the Festival. The gardeners are rewarded by your pleasure and interest and profits from refreshments (often Fairtrade) go towards their chosen charities. No dogs please.

Open Friday 8, Saturday 9, Sunday 10 July from 11.00 – 17.00 – see map for further details.
