BEAUTIFUL blooms will be on show when private gardens in the St Bernard’s Road section of the Olton Conservation Area open to the public to raise vital cash for the Stroke Association.
The Victorian and Edwardian houses in St Bernard’s Road were planned with large gardens when they were built – perfect for green-fingered enthusiasts.
And on Sunday, June 25 – between 1pm and 5.30pm – 11 of them will be opening their garden gates to welcome visitors and help raise money for the charity which supports people living with the devastating impact of stroke and helps fund vital research.
A spokesperson for the Open Gardens event said visitors would be able to enjoy spacious lawns, a colourful range of perennial plants, vegetable cultivation and mature trees.
They will also be able to buy a wide range of plants, enjoy refreshments and home-made cakes and even enjoy a Pimms and live music in one of the gardens.
Entry is £5 per person and covers all the open gardens. Children under 12 go free.
