  • The gardeners who opened their gardens got the chance to visit the Open Gardens themselves last night, and what an evening to do it! Everything smelt heavenly, the views were amazing, and we topped it off with sunset drinks. Shaftesbury - you’re amazing! . #opengardens #shaftesbury #fundraising #flowerstagram #gardeninspo #garden #greenfingers #dorset
