FOUR NEW GARDENS FOR 2019!

 

We are pleased to announce that four new and very different gardens opened their gates to the public for the first time as part of GSSG this year. Three communal gardens, and one modern private  garden designed by a local garden design company. 


The weather was changeable, unlike last year's heatwave, but the gardens reported plenty of visitors.

 


The PONITA (People of Note) community choir were to sing in various open gardens during this year's event on Sunday between 2:00 - 4:30 p.m.


However, after singing in Worcester Terrace gardens to an appreciative audience, they were unable to sing in the next two gardens due to a heavy downpour that lasted over an hour. We apologise if you were unable to enjoy the choirs this year. It was especially disappointing as the CANTA NOVA choir from Bristol's twin city Hannover, Germany were singing with them this year.

 

Photos of their performances will be published on the website in due course.

 


 8-9 June Green Squares and Secret Gardens weekend 2019


For two days in June some of Bristol's hidden gardens and green spaces opened their gates for the public to enjoy and explore.


With the purchase of a GSSG ticket, visitors discovered a variety of gardens which are usually closed to the public - and enjoyed a range of activities and experiences for all the family. From barbeques and afternoon teas, to croquet and community choirs, there were lots of reasons to linger and enjoy the environment.


The Green Squares and Secret Gardens weekend showcases some of the best gardens and green spaces that make up the rich tapestry of Clifton and Hotwells’ secret green infrastructure.

Green Squares and Secret Gardens 2020 will take place 13th & 14th June. 




In the meantime, here are some of the highlights from GSSG 2019 in pictures. 


“The glory of gardening: hands in the dirt, head in the sun, heart with nature.

To nurture a garden is to feed not just the body, but the soul”.
