Two Kent gardens are set to open to the public for the first time next month.
Churchman’s Farm has a dry and sunny valley garden with paths around the adjoining lake and fields.
The focus of the garden is to encourage wildlife and many animals can be found inhabiting the area around the lake.
The chalk and flint soil has limited shade so dahlias and salvias are a particular draw for the garden as they grow in abundance.
The gardens nearer the farmhouse reflect more of a traditional English country garden with a large, well-maintained lawn, rose beds and a herbaceous border.
Churchman’s Farm on Stalisfield Road, near Faversham, will be open on Friday, September 8 and Saturday, September 9 from 11am to 4pm.
Visitors are welcome to bring a picnic to enjoy by the lake and there will be a selection of plants on sale.
Admission costs £6 per adult while children go free.
Another new garden opening next month is the Copper House, which can be found in Benenden near Cranbrook.
The site boasts a modern flower garden to match the contemporary architecture of the house and is full of annuals, perennials, bulbs and shrubs.
There is also a small wildflower meadow, orchard and three ponds to bring wildlife to the garden.
The garden is dog-friendly and will be putting on a cream tea for visitors during its opening.
The Copper House is on Hinksden Road in Benenden, near the Hinksden Dairy, and will be open on Saturday, September 9 and Sunday, September 10 from 11am to 3pm.
Tickets need to be booked online in advance here due to limited parking.
Admission costs £5 per adult while children go free.
