A hidden group of gardens, featuring colourful flower meadows, fruit and vegetable plots and a collection of over 300 cacti, are to be opened to the public to raise money for charity.
10 gardens in Wisbech St Mary, which are usually hidden from the public, will be open on Saturday June 25 from 10am until 5pm.
Now in its 13th year, the opening of the gardens is set to offer floral displays, ponds and water features and a falconry display, which is set to run in two sessions from 11am until noon and 2pm until 3pm.
Lunch, cake and cream teas will also feature to stave off hunger, and entry will cost £4. Accompanied under 16s go free, and a free programme and map will be provided.
Last year, opening the gardens helped raise £1,670 for the Cystic Fibrosis Trust, and the organisers are trying to raise even more money this year.
