Nine secret gardens in Wisbech St Mary, normally hidden from the public, will be open for visitors to admire on Sunday, June 21.

There is something for everyone - small colourful cottage gardens, large open landscapes, wild flower meadows, fruit and vegetable plots, a collection of more than 300 cacti and succulents, on-line weather station, ponds and water features, hens, fish, a private falconry collection and more.

Fundraising this year is in aid of Papworth Hospital Charity. Last year £820 was raised.

Gardens will be offering everything from pizzas cooked in an outdoor wood fired oven to cakes and cream teas.

Falconry flying demonstrations are at 11am-noon and 2-3pm.

Buy entry programmes with maps on the day from any participating garden - look for the gardens displaying a large orange flower.

Gardens are located on Station Road, High Road, St Mary’s Close and off Churchfield Way (PE13 4RY).
