The first opening of 2017 for the National Gardens Scheme in Powys will be Oak Cottage (23 High Street), Welshpool on Sunday between 2pm and 5pm.

The town centre walled-garden has been revamped over the last two years but still presents gravel paths and stepping stones winding through a wide variety of plants.

At this time of the year the garden will have a wide selection of hellebores in flower. A Wardian style cabinet, the alpine house and troughs will have a number of alpines and hepaticas in flower.

Entry to the garden is from Bowling Green Lane which runs parallel to the High Street and which offers parking on Sundays. Homemade cakes and tea/coffee will be available.

The entrance charge is £3.50 for adults, children free.

In 2016, £2.7 million raised through the National Gardens Scheme went to a variety of charities including Macmillan Cancer Support, Marie Curie, Parkinson’s UK,

MS Society and Hospice UK.
