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.
