Stony Open Gardens will be back in June 2019.
History in brief:
Stony Stratford Open Gardens started in 2003 as the brainchild of Sheila Plater, in memory of her gardening friend who had died of cancer. Over 15 gardens opened and in excess of £13,000 was raised for Willen Hospice. It brought the townsfolk together in a very cheerful and happy way. It was decided to hold the event every two years thereafter. Following Sheila’s sad death, her daughters organised the 2005 event and, in Sheila’s memory, a number of keen gardeners and community minded supporters have teamed up to keep Stony Open Gardens going ever since.
