GARDENERS in Lymington will open their gates to visitors in aid of the town's St Barbe Museum and Art Gallery.

On Sunday 29th May, from 2pm until 6pm, people will be welcome to visit 14 properties, ranging from small courtyards off the high street to expansive lawned gardens.

The last open gardens day in the town was in 2019 when 800-plus tickets were sold, raising £6,000 for the museum and its work.

A St Barbe spokesperson said: "On the high street there is one of Lymington’s original town gardens while, nearby, another offers an oasis of calm.

"In one garden you can see what may be the oldest plane tree in England, whilst another features a magnificent scarlet oak.

"Whether you are a plants-person or are interested in garden design and layout, or you just enjoy the beauty of the garden, you are bound to find a garden to suit your tastes. And the garden owners will be on hand to answer your questions."

Admission to the gardens is by programme, costing £7.50 per adult. Buy throughout May from St Barbe in New Street and from 2pm on 29th May at any one of the participating gardens.
