A suitably sunny start to open garden season

THIS year’s first St Michael’s Hospice Open Garden event was a sunny occasion, and saw crowds of garden lovers flock to Mountfield Court in John’s Cross.

A number of visitors enjoyed exploring this splendid three acre garden, which was filled with camellias, rhododendrons and azaleas.

The next Open Garden event will take place in Winchelsea on Tuesday May 13, 10.30am-4pm, where several stunning gardens will be open including Cleveland House, Cleveland Place, Tanners Plat, 1 Strand Plat, The Well House and The Armoury.

Admission can be purchased at any of the gardens for £5 (maps provided).
