Perennial’s new 2020 Special Events garden tour programme features 18 exclusive and stunning gardens to visit including:

  • Arne Maynard’s own garden Allt-y-bela
  • The 52 acre Tusmore Park in Oxfordshire currently being redesigned by Tom Stuart-Smith
  • An amazing 3 day holiday to Scotland including the BBC’s Beechgrove garden and the 8 acre Gordon Castle Walled Garden

This year we’ve seen a 20% increase in the people we’re helping, so your support is needed now more than ever. Our events make fantastic presents for friends and family and you can all enjoy a wonderful day out knowing the money raised has helped us support someone in need.

Hurry! There are limited places available for each event so book now to secure your place in 2020.
