Faversham's Open Garden and Garden Market

Faversham’s Open Gardens and Garden Market day is Kent’s largest private open gardens event, featuring Favershams’ 30+ private and community gardens.

Andy Garland of Sunday Gardening will be broadcasting from very different types of gardens: a trio of charming small gardens behind newly-built houses in Chambers Wharf Lane/New Creek Road, a typical long, thin Victorian town garden in Newton Road and a Georgian walled garden in The Mall.

There’ll also be interviews with other gardeners, such as the town meadow garden in Abbey Street, an award-winning wildlife garden and many others. Faversham Open Gardens & Market Day is a chance to stroll round Faversham’s historic streets and enjoy the gardens behinds some of its 400 Listed Buildings. In the medieval Market Place, there will be 35+ stalls, selling plants, local foods, gardening accessories, crafts and vintage gardening items. There will also be a children’s ‘Hunt The Golden Pebble’ competition. Teas are available in several gardens, and many of Faversham’s cafes, pubs and restaurants will be open.

Entry to the private gardens only by guide-book £6 (2 x £10) available from the Faversham Society, 10-13 Preston St, Faversham ME13 0NS.

Faversham, Kent, has more than 400 Listed Buildings, and there will be a wide variety of town gardens to view, including a ‘meadow’ garden, walled gardens and a garden based around the old gunpowder works ponds. Faversham’s allotments are considered amongst the prettiest in Britain. Community gardens include The Abbey Physic Garden, a wildlife-friendly garden in the old Abbey physic gardens, which trains people with mental and physical disabilities. The event is a Faversham Society fund-raiser, a heritage charity which helps to protect Faversham’s history, environment and buildings.
