With an estimated 124,500 gardens in Somerset, covering 19 square kilometres of the county, the gardens of Somerset have huge potential for nature. So Somerset Wildlife Trust are developing an open gardens programme in order to inspire people to make their own gardens more friendly towards wildlife, as well as to raise funds for the Trust.
Sunday 4th August 2019, 11am – 4pm : Somerset’s Wildlife Garden: Badbury Flower Company

Somerset’s Wildlife Garden: Hillcrest
Garden viewings by prior arrangement between March and September
Charles and Charlotte Sunquist
Hillcrest is a 5-acre garden with so many special places within it that everyone can find a perfect spot to sit and contemplate. The lawn is the most formal part of the garden but is perfect for cartwheels! It has incredible far reaching views overlooking the Somerset Levels. You can see Glastonbury Tor and Burrow Mump but Hillcrest has its own standing stone if you would like something even closer. There is a very large wild flower meadow leading down to an enormous wildlife pond full of dragonflies. There are bee hives to visit too with a bee expert on hand to answer any questions you may have about these essential visitors to our gardens.
