Share your garden to help our appeals bloom

Register your garden

Thank you for your interest in our Open Gardens scheme which is raising money for The Blossom Appeal at Ipswich Hospital and the Time Garden Appeal at Colchester Hospital.

It’s easy to take part. You choose which appeal you would like to support and the date/s to open your garden up to the public. Visitors are asked to make a donation to your chosen appeal. You can boost fundraising by offering cakes and refreshments, having a plant sale or selling local crafts.

We will be promoting all the Open Gardens but you can help too. Let your friends, family and neighbours know, ask them to spread the word. You could even make it a community event by having a few gardens open on the same day. To register your garden or to find out more, please complete the form below so we can get in touch with you.
