Glorious Gardens


Would you be willing to share your garden with the local community in 2022?

St Margaret’s Hospice Care is hoping that many of you, our green-fingered supporters, will open your gates next summer to the general public to showcase your own glorious green spaces and raise money for our hospice.

Whether it's for one day or for the whole summer season, the money you raise by sharing your garden, allotment, farm or orchard will go straight to caring and supporting the people of Somerset facing life-limiting illnesses, who need to access our care often during their final months of life.

This is not only a fantastic and unique way of supporting your local hospice, but a wonderful way to showcase your gardening prowess to your local community. From small courtyards to country estates, no garden is too big or small and every garden will have something for people to enjoy.

Host FAQs

You will receive support from our wonderful Glorious Gardens team, who will provide you with a gardener’s pack containing all the information you should need in the preparation of your opening. They will support you with risk assessing your garden, as well as resources on the day.

This is entirely up to you - some gardens open for one day, others for a weekend, or a few times over the summer, some are open all year round, and some by appointment only. Sometimes a group of local gardeners get together and open their gardens jointly in their village and town on the same day, which has proven very successful.

Regardless of shape and size, we welcome all gardens and have previously hosted a wide range including small courtyard gardens full of roses, local allotments, small holdings, and everything in between from Victorian Terraced Homes to Georgian Manor Houses.

No – many gardens can only offer on street parking or local car parks, but the majority of gardens are after all just people’s own homes, who won’t have the space for spare parking. You can decide what you offer in terms of refreshments and facilities, and whether or not dogs are welcome on leads. All of this information can be included in our brochure to pre-warn visitors to your garden so they can prepare for their trip.
