TWO GARDENS are opening their gates to raise funds for good causes in the next week – one in Malvern and one in Tenbury Wells.
Cowleigh Farm Park, Cowleigh Road, Malvern, will be open this Sunday, July 31, from 1pm to 5pm.
The 1.5acre garden surrounds a Grade II listed timber-framed former farmhouse (not open).
Whilst no longer a farm, the property has views to adjacent orchards and inc lawns, spring fed ponds, a waterfall and stream.
The focus in established beds and borders is to be bee and wildlife friendly. The garden contains multiple seating areas and a summerhouse. Homemade teas are on offer and are being sold in aid of Chernobyl Children Lifeline.
Admission is £5 and a donation for children.
Highways at Hanley William, Tenbury Wells, will open its gates between 10am and 4pm on Wednesday, August 3.
The one-acre garden has been developed over the past 16 years and features several herbaceous borders, a natural stream and wildlife pond.
There is a Woodland area with established trees, newly planted arboretum, a bog garden and some very impressive gunnera.
It also boasts a vegetable garden, koi pond and pergolas with clematis and climbing roses, views over the Teme Valley, steps and sloping lawn.
Not suitable for wheelchairs.
Homemade teas are available.
Admission is £6.
