Community Open Gardens 2024

We are once again on the lookout for local people to share their wonderful gardens!

2023’s Community Open Gardens were very well-received and attended, so we would love to include more amazing gardens for people to enjoy in 2024. Will you consider opening your garden? Your kindness will enable people to enjoy the delights of your garden and will help raise vital funds to care for local patients and families.

Register your garden today...

Sign up to Community Open Gardens 2024!

If you love your garden and would like to be a part of our 2024 Open Gardens programme, then please register your interest by calling Hayley on 01803 217450 or email her at and she will be delighted to help you.

All participating gardens registered by Friday 29th March will be included in a booklet which we will share with our supporters and suitable local businesses, to encourage visits to the beautiful gardens throughout the year.

Once you have signed up, giving the date/s you would like to open your garden, you will receive a fundraising pack from us with handy hints and tips on how to make your event a success, and details of what we can do to help.

A few words from Di Feasby...

Di Feasby is a volunteer gardener at the hospice. Her husband Steve was cared for in Rowcroft’s Inpatient Unit before he passed away.

During our Open Garden weekends here last year, Di and Graham – a member of our Estates Team – gave guided tours of the gardens, and shared snippets of the history of the estate.

These were so successful; a few dates have been included in our programme again this year.

“When my husband Steve was in Rowcroft’s Inpatient Unit, he loved looking out at the gardens,” says Di. “I love taking people around the grounds now – there is always something different to see. From the scilla and daffodils in the orchard, to the beautiful wildflower Meadow of Memories. Please do come and see them for yourself this year.”
