Romford and Brentwood gardens to reopen over the summer

Private gardens in and around Romford and Brentwood will be opening for the National Garden Scheme this summer.

Many gardens were almost completely closed last year, but owners are inviting the public back on selected dates over the coming months.

Organisers hope the scheme will help make up some of the shortfall in funds usually raised for local nursing and health charities.

Some of the gardens opening to the public include Barnards Farm in West Horndon, Long House Plants in Noak Hill and The Gates horticultural project in Brentwood.

Visitors will be able to explore trails, experience diverse habitats and pick up helpful gardening tips to use at home.

Home-made tea, refreshments and plants will also be on sale at many of the sites.

Entry to most of the gardens is around £5 per adult and children usually have free entry.

All garden openings are subject to the coronavirus restrictions in place at the time and in some instances pre-booking of timed entry slots will be in place.

More information about which gardens are taking part in the National Garden Scheme and when they are due to open can be found here.
