Abpve: Getting ready for Baltimore Secret Gardens weekend were, Jean Perry (Glebe Gardens), Friederike Haffner (Rolf's Country House), Michael O'Regan (Rosewood House), Tony O'Mahony (Inis Beag Estate), Simon Murnane, Carly Wright & Carol Henry (Ballylynch Farm).

Now in its third year, Baltimore Secret Gardens Weekend offers an opportunity to visit some inspiring private gardens, many of which do not regularly open to the public.

The brainchild of Jean Perry from the Glebe Gardens in Baltimore, the aim of the weekend is to encourage interest in gardening locally, to attract gardening enthusiasts from further afield to the pretty seaside village and to raise funds for charity; over €3,400 was raised last year.

Jean has persuaded her friends and neighbours to open their gardens on Saturday, July 4 and Sunday, July 5 and there are eight gardens participating this year, with some new as well as old favourites.

Full details of participating gardens are available on baltimoresecretgardens.com and most will be open 12pm to 5pm both days. Baltimore Secret Gardens Weekend supports a number of different charities – each garden has nominated their own. A €10 ticket covers entry to all gardens (purchase at first garden visited) or else choose the gardens you would like to visit and make a donation at each. Jean hopes you will be inspired by these gardens, lovingly tended by their owners.

In association with Baltimore Secret Gardens Weekend, Deelish Garden Centre on River Road, Skibbereen is holding a charity day on Saturday, July 4 with all profits going to Medecins Sans Frontieres. Happy Gardening!
