Most of the gardens are within easy walking distance of each other and range from large open landscapes to container and cottage gardens.
There is something for everyone including fruit and vegetable plots, a wild flower garden, a collection of more than 300 cacti and succulents, an online weather station, ponds and water features.
Refreshments are available at most gardens from tea and cakes to homemade pizza cooked on a wood fired outdoor oven.
