Histon & Impington’s popular Open Gardens event is back this June and it’s bigger and better than ever before.

Ever wondered what goes on behind the façade of the houses of Histon & Impington? Well, now you can find out, botanically speaking, that is. Histon & Impington Open Gardens is back this summer on Sunday 9th June and it’s bigger and better than ever before.

Out of a total of 18 gardens opening – our biggest number to date – 11 are new additions, opening to the public for the very first time. So whether you’re a veteran of Open Gardens or you’re new to the idea of visiting our villages’ beautiful private spaces, you’re all in for a treat!

The gardens on offer will tempt gardens lovers of every type. There are small, secluded spaces where water bubbles and chickens, cats and even pigs roam free, or grand landscapes with moats, islands and mysterious woods. Feast your eyes on the pretty planting of herbaceous borders or formal shrubbery. Japanese-themed beds mix with collections of Mediterranean drought-tolerant plants. Not forgetting the need to feed body and soul, some of the gardens on show will be bursting with mature fruit trees and well-stocked veg patches, while others display sculpture made by the owner’s own hands. Whatever your gardening persuasion, you can’t fail to be impressed and inspired.

And if that isn’t enough, in a number of the gardens, you can enjoy a drink and a bite to eat, as well as live music and even a book reading. More details coming soon.
