Here is a selection of feedback from our lovely visitors to this years show.
"I just wanted to say how much we enjoyed visiting the gardens over the weekend last month. They were really beautiful and all so different, we had a lovely time. We are big fans of the IOW and have visited for 4 years now. Last year we missed the Open Gardens weekend by 1 week, so we booked our trip especially to coincide with it this year and are SO pleased we did. The whole event was really well organised and everyone was so friendly. It was wonderful to be able to discuss gardens and plants with so many people who are keen and have loads more knowledge than I do. Thank you for a wonderful weekend! Mrs R. 😊 (Northampton)"
"Thank you for a lovely afternoon, we had a wonderful time."
"Really enjoyed it yesterday, there were some stunning gardens. The mini bus was a godsend for getting up the Shute at the end. Thanks for organising it, it's amazing how much you can fit into some of the gardens."
"Thank you so much. A wonderful afternoon !"
