Our tiny Suffolk village – in the middle of nowhere but only a short distance from Ipswich – is opening its gardens for the first time in five years over the weekend of 22nd – 23rd June 2019. As well as a range of very different gardens to visit, there will be some exciting displays and other events to keep the whole family happy. Flowton’s delightful 13th century church will also host a colourful Flower Festival from 11.00am on the theme of Nursery Rhymes.
Refreshments, lunches and cream teas will be available throughout the weekend.
Proceeds will go to help maintain St Mary’s Church, Flowton, and to FIND (Families in Need), our local Ipswich food and furniture bank which provides crucial support to many local families and individuals in need.
£5.00 for adults; under 16s free. Tickets will be available at Flowton Church and at some gardens. Valid for both days. The programme includes information on the gardens, a map and information on other activities. Please show the programme at each garden.
Parking is available around the village and the main parking areas will be well sign-posted; most of the gardens can be reached on foot from the centre of the village. Considerate on-road parking is permitted but bear in mind the roads are small Suffolk lanes so ensure other road users can pass. Blue Badge holders may park at most of the gardens.
Well behaved dogs are welcome if kept on leads. Please clean up after your dog. If you wish to stretch your legs further there is a walking map of Flowton and surrounds available from the Church for a small donation.
Toilets are available at the Church and some residents have offered the use of their facilities -these are marked on the programme map.
Most of our gardens have uneven walking surfaces and other hazards so please take care. Visiting is at your own risk. Please keep an eye on your children, especially around ponds.
More than just gardens….
