An Evening at Homeyards Botanical Gardens, Shaldon

Date & Time of Event: 
Friday, 7 June, 2013 - 17:00 to 19:30
Homeyards Botanical Gardens were created during the 1920’s and 30’s for Maria Laetitia Kempe Homeyard.    Her husband William had invented and manufactured a very popular patent cough syrup called Liqufruta. They used their fortune to buy Ness Cottage at the east end of the gardens.  Reputedly, 365 trees and shrubs were planted, but only a few of the originals survive, including three magnificent Weeping Beech near the Italianate garden.

Tour of gardens, music, light supper and refreshments.  From 5p.m.  Parking at the Ness car park, with shuttle service for those who need a ride.   

£2.00 - tour of gardens only; £7.50 to include light supper and entertainment.
