The recent spring weather bodes very well for gardening and we’ve brought you multiple pieces on the topic throughout the week. National Public Gardens Day is Friday, May 6th and one local historic estate is taking advantage of this national celebration. The gardens and grounds at the Fells in Newbury will be open free to the public today to the 8th to celebrate National Public Gardens Day. YCN News talked with Fells Nursery Manager Sue Ellen Weed-Parkes about the event and what the Fells has planned for the weekend.
National Public Gardens Day was started in 2009 by the National Public Gardens Association, who designated that the first Friday before Mother’s Day be National Public Gardens Day.
Public and historic gardens through North America are open free to the public and The Fells gardens in Newbury will be open 10am to 4pm.
