Dear Friends

Faversham Open Gardens is a rare chance to see in the secret areas behind many Faversham houses - grand and ordinary, but all with a special flavour to their gardens. Open 10am to 5 pm

Get the Entry Booklet  in advance from the  Fleur de Lis Museum, Preston Street, Faversham.
This year for the first time there will be garden - related Market stalls in Preston Street, Faversham and it all takes place around the town, rather than  out lying villages, so you can walk  everywhere, and take your time .  I am opening my garden this year for the first time together with two neighbours in Upper Brents. We are adjoining terraced houses with a very different take on gardening - come and see the contrast ! 

We have a colourful organic, low maintenance food garden which has won a gold medal  for being Wild life friendly ;  cool green garden with unusual hedges  and the enormous and rare Echiums  as well as  dinosaurs and quirky containers filled with  plants in Katy Cox's garden. The garden and toilet at 99 Upper Brents  are wheel chair accessible. Teas  will be served all day, and Plants  and crafts will be on sale in aid of Dyspraxia Action, a new charity we are setting up .

We would be very grateful for any support on the day or donations of cakes or plants. Please deliver to the rear of 99 Upper Brents by Friday evening. 
But most important, I look forward to seeing you there in person, and having a sit down and a cup of tea with you in the garden! 

best wishes 

There are over 30+ gardens to enjoy on Sunday 29th June plus a special Garden themed market on Sunday.
