A selection of gardens within the village will be open. Some gardens owners' descriptions:
"A small garden stuffed with too many cottage garden plants. Not an inch of soil to be seen. With a lawn that decreases in size annually as I make space for more plants. Far from perfect, but I love it."
"A Traditional English Cottage Garden with borders of old-fashioned perennials and roses. Vegetable garden with fruit bushes and bank of wild flowers on far side of paddock."
"Lawn, assorted shrubs and perennials and mature trees. Developing wild flower area, patio and wall with assorted containers. Centred around a old pan-tiled potting shed. A work in progress."
There will be produce and plant stalls, refreshments, competitions and games and children's activities at the Village Hall as well as a treasure trail around the gardens.
All proceeds split between the Village Hall and the Church funds.
Plant sales: Plants available for sale at the village hall.
Cost: £2.50 adults, accompanied children free.
