This summer Gloucestershire Wildlife Trust kicks off its Open Gardens season with a public celebration of the garden at Upton Wold on Friday 9th June 2017, from 5pm to 7pm. Located just outside Moreton-in-Marsh, this is a rare opportunity to visit this inspirational garden.

James Bagshaw, Fundraising Officer for Gloucestershire Wildlife Trust, says:

“There is so much to see at Upton Wold gardens; it’s a place to really immerse yourself in nature and lose track of time. We’re hugely grateful to Mr & Mrs Ian Bond for the opportunity to help showcase the garden when it will be at its most spectacular, in June.”

Over the last four decades, endless hard work and dedication has been poured into the land; stunning views complement the unique arrangement of flora. Look out for highlights including the handkerchief tree, pond garden, labyrinth, hidden garden and one of the largest arboretums of Walnut trees in the country.

Entrance to the gardens is just £5 per person and under 16’s are free, all proceeds will go to Gloucestershire Wildlife Trust to support its work protecting, restoring and expanding upon the wildlife and wild places in our beautiful county. There is no need to book, just turn up on the day. Fresh cakes and drinks will be available.

Upton Wold Garden is usually hidden from sight, opened just once a year for the National Garden Scheme, and by appointment only for garden enthusiasts. The garden is just off the A44, four miles northbound from Moreton-in-Marsh. The entrance is on the right hand side and will be signposted on the day.
