Public Open Evening:

The 2018 Public Open Evening is confirmed as Wednesday 18th July.
4pm - 8pm

More details to follow!

Our Trials Grounds opened last Summer for one special evening and proved an incredible success, raising in excess of were a to the Public on the evening of £8,000 for two fantastic charities; our local hospice, Katharine House, and to the David Colegrave Foundation.

Over 1,200 visitors from Adderbury, surrounding areas and as far as Australia came to see the 4 acres of spectacular trial grounds. These were filled with colourful gardens and patio displays to explore as well as the largest display of hanging baskets and containers in the UK. A visit to the Open Evening also provided our visitors with a very unique and special opportunity to preview New Plant Introductions yet to be released into Garden Centres in 2018!


We were delighted to be joined by The Sun Newspaper's Gardening expert; Peter Seabrook, a number of fantastic Craft Stalls along with some musical entertainment from the Banbury Ukes (Ukele band), The Great Tew choir, a Barrel Organist, the Adderbury Morris Men, and Alpacas.

As usual we had a selection of flowering patio plants for sale along with light refreshments. It was a reasonable evening weather wise, with a few of the families who visited making the most of the wonderful atmosphere and brought along a picnic.

Admission is just £3.00 on the door (no advance bookings). Children under the age of 12 are free.

Sorry, no dogs permitted (except guide dogs)

Parking is free and just a very short walk to the entrance. Coach parties are welcome, but please to make us aware in advance so we can reserve suitable parking space.
