The Great Garden Trail returns for 2019 with even more gardens to explore across Suffolk!

The trail sponsored by Bedfords Estate Agents runs from spring to autumn, providing a wide variety of outdoor spaces for people to explore in return for a donation to the hospice.

In total, we have 47 garden events, with this year's list including 13 open village events and 34 individual gardens.

Over the last two years, the Great Garden Trail has offered the public the chance to discover and admire the gardens of others, with many favourites returning once again this year to showcase their outdoor space.

Gardens opening this year include the colourful Blakenham Woodland Gardens, the beautiful village estate at Playford Hall and the cottage style garden at 618 Foxhall Road, which is just a stone's throw from the hospice.

Trail maps are available to download below, from all St Elizabeth Hospice shops as well as selected garden centres and nurseries around the county. Please note that not all gardens are included in our trail map, but are included in the list of gardens which is also available to download below.

Thanks also to Katie’s Garden Plant Centre who will be attending a selection of open garden events and offering a selection of plants for visitors to buy. 

The plants on offer vary from herbaceous perennials in various pot sizes, a variety of bedding and patio plants, herbs and alpines, and for the larger gardens a selection of shrubs and climbers.

Please follow below for the full list of gardens supported by Katie's Garden.
