Barton-in-Fabis Open Gardens and Flower Festival

approx 15 gardens open Barton in Fabis, southwest of Nottingham,
Saturday 8th and Sunday 9th July 2017, 11.00am to 5.00pm

Gardens open around a small country village with a Flower Festival in St George's Church. We have a good number of gardens open this year. One of our gardens was given an award in 2011 for 'Britains greenest garden' awarded by the magazine 'Brilliant Homes' in conjunction with B&Q.

In 2012/13 we entered East Midlands in Bloom and the church yard was awarded a special Judges award; the rest of the village and gardens was awarded the Silver Guilt Award on both years. The RHS put our name forward for the RHS National in Bloom for 2013 and we won Gold in the small village category so our event is well worth a visit.

Ploughman's lunches and cream teas available along with drinks in the local village hall.
