Embrace the embarrassment of riches. For the next three weekends you can visit first gardens, then both gardens and studios, then just studios. The first weekend’s gardens, on 6th and 7th June, are in Hyde Vale, Crooms Hill, West Grove, Prior Street, Gloucester Circus, Park Vista, Kidbrooke Gardens, Morden Road, Blackheath Park, Orchard Drive, Eliot Place, North Several, Pagoda Gardens, and Shooters Hill Road.
Some of them are quite grand. Most are impressive. All are worth visiting even if you’re not a gardener – it’s like an outdoor moving party without music. Some hosts give you tea and cake, others Pimms or wine. You pay £3 a garden or £10 for the lot. The money goes to the Greenwich & Bexley Community Hospice. Full details at
or at www.communityhospice.org.uk where it says
‘Entry is free for children and dogs (unless specified) are not permitted’ I hope the erratic newsflash formatting doesn’t break this line at the wrong place. It also says gardens are open from 2-6pm, even if it rains.
