Make a donation to the Hospice

We'll be showcasing the wonderful efforts of our open garden supporters

Our garden events are always popular dates in our calendar. We are pleased that our gardeners are excited to open their gates and we can start planning for the coming months.

Please keep an eye on this page as we announce further details.

Spring is in the air in Thetford!

Although they cannot welcome people through their gates to enjoy their daffodils and blossom, the Thetford Open Garden team has decided that isn’t going to stop them from showing off their blooms.

The gardeners have been doing their best to keep their gardens in tip-top condition in readiness for the summer and when they can welcome visitors as part of Thetford Open Gardens in June.

So to brighten up everyone’s day, they have shared some photos of some beautiful spring flowers. We hope you enjoy them.

Bury Hidden Gardens

Bury St Edmunds Hidden Gardens will see a variety of gardens, often hidden from view, open their gates on 11 July.

While planning for the event continues, visitors can be sure there will be a wonderful array of beautiful and tranquil green spaces to enjoy.

Alongside the Hidden Gardens event, the Hospice will be running a virtual programme too, from 20 June 20 to 11 July, which will include virtual garden tours, podcasts from a variety of garden experts, and a special talk that will detail the history of some of the town’s wonderful homes and gardens.

Thetford Open Gardens

Kindly organised by the Thetford Open Gardens team, this year’s event will be held over two dates.

On 6 June, a dozen gardens will be open showcasing the early roses and summer flowers, with around the same number of gardens opening on 27 June. Visitors can expect some new gardens as well as favourites from previous years.

Refreshments and plants will also be available.
