Warwickshire Gardens Trust

Warwick Open Gardens 2013
Sunday  July 7

The event raised 3700. More than 800 visitors came to view private Warwick gardens as well as the popular attraction gardens.

The organising group want s to thank all the garden owners and everyone who helped or visited for their amazing contribution.

Air Ambulance received 2600

Warwick Tree Wardens received 550 to enhance the tree planting down the Stratford Road, which is a Jubilee project. The Tree Wardens were therefore able to use bigger specimens which have a better chance of survival.

Hill Close Gardens received a similar sum to assist the restoration of one of the original garden buildings. It has gradually been transformed from pigsty to garden store to gardener's bothy over a long period from Victorian times till the present day.

It is on the plot which was tended for over 30 years by George Mills. He was a dedicated gardener and a great friend of the Gardens until his death on 31 December 2012. Restoration of the building will provide a fitting memorial for George who grew prize-winning produce on this plot and was a firm favourite with visitors to Hill Close
