Open Gardens at Dirleton

Dirleton Open Gardens

Dear Gardeners of Dirleton,

Happy New Year to everyone.

This is the time of year when our gardens are pretty devoid of much growth but bulbs are beginning to appear and from now on the garden will need attention

Dirleton Village Gardens are OPEN this year, 2024. The dates are:-

  • Saturday 8th June
  • Sunday 9th June

I know some of you will be thinking of summer holiday plans so please try to avoid these dates.

The number of openers inevitably fluctuates from year to year and we are looking for some new gardens to ensure that we have a minimum of twelve openers this year. So I appeal to anyone who has not opened before to consider giving it a try.

Please let me know if you will be opening your garden as before or would like advice or assistance to try opening in June 2024. I will be delighted to discuss the details.

Please also remember that the proceeds go to worthy charities – 40% to the RNLI, who are responsible for providing the teas in the Church Hall, 40% to Scotland’s Gardens Scheme’s nominated charities and a very useful 20% to the Dirleton Village Association to help fund village projects and run your village association. At the last opening, in 2022, this raised over £1100 for the DVA.
