Trinity's award-winning gardens will open their gates to visitors this Sunday 8th April as part of the National Garden Scheme Open Garden Weekend.

The Open Garden Weekend in April is the perfect time to see Trinity’s two-acre gardens in full of springtime activity - an abundance of bulbs in flower and the potential to see herons, hedgehogs, fish, and dragonfly. There is also a greenhouse, three active beehives and a ‘bug hotel’ to explore.

Terry Salter, Head Gardener at Trinity said “We always enjoy welcoming visitors to the garden at Trinity during the Open Garden Weekend. Our gardens in the heart of Clapham really are a hidden gem which a lot of the local community isn’t aware of.

“We’re told every day how soothing and peaceful our gardens are for our patients and their families. In April, when the garden is just waking up for Spring it’s particularly special to explore. We look forward to greeting new visitors and welcoming back those who have spent time in the gardens and the hospice before.”

Trinity’s gardens boast dozens of varieties of shrubs, herbaceous plants and shrub roses, forty-seven varieties of hellebore, eight fruit trees and three specimen magnolias. In the spring there is an abundance of bulbs in flower including over 4,000 mixed daffodils and narcissi along with 3,000 grape hyacinths.

The gardens will be open between 10am and 4.30pm at 30 Clapham Common North Side on Sunday 8th April. Admission is £3.00 for adults and free for children. Light refreshments will be provided on the day and picnics are welcome. Volunteers from Trinity will be available to answer questions.

Visitors will also have a second opportunity to visit the gardens at the next NGS Open Garden Weekend held on Sunday 20th May.
