On Friday June 20, Parham House is opening its award-winning gardens and hosting an RHS gardening talk by Adam Pasco, former editor of BBC Gardeners’ World Magazine.

Experience a magical Midsummer’s Eve as dusk descends on the four acre 18th century walled garden at Parham House.

Stroll through stunning herbaceous borders, full of summer colour and indulge in the sensations of the scented rose garden.

Admire the extensive vegetable garden and orchard before ambling over to the Pleasure Grounds to enjoy the specimen trees and the challenge of the brick and turf maze.

Adam Pasco will give a talk in Parham House at 7.30pm on ‘The Golden Rules of Gardening’ in which he shares his expert knowledge to help gardeners achieve greater success and productivity.

Lady Emma Barnard of Parham House commented “We are greatly looking forward to this Midsummer’s Eve event. T

om Brown, our head gardener, and his team have been working flat out to have the garden looking sensational It will be very special as the evening light fades and garden scents linger. The talk by Mr Pasco promises to be fascinating and insightful for all garden enthusiasts.”

Chilled prosecco and soft drinks will be available for purchase and the Parham Garden Shop will have over 200 varieties of home grown herbaceous perennials for sale.

The gardens will be open from 6.00pm – 9.00pm with the Adam Pasco talk from 7.30pm - 9.00 pm. Tickets are available on the gate or from the RHS on 0845 612 1253 (quote ref 11049).

Prices: £8.50 for RHS members and £10 for non-members. £5 for the gardens only.
