Best Gardens On St Mary’s To Go On Display

garden 2Green fingered islanders are being encouraged to show off their handiwork in a fundraiser for Macmillan Cancer Support.

The Isles of Scilly Inner Wheel hopes to host a monthly, summer open garden scheme. It will run for two days from Monday May 20th and continue if there’s interest.

Visitors and locals will be able to buy tickets at the TIC or from any of the six gardens and one courtyard already enrolled in the scheme.

Inner Wheel president Jane Chiverton says she wants to hear from more islanders who’d like to put their flower, landscaping or vegetable gardening skills on display.

She says the organisers know of many excellent gardens on St Mary’s, but Jane says some are off the beaten track and rarely get seen.

Cream teas will be available during the event.
