COTTAGE gardens and organic vegetable patches in Southam will be open to for the public over the weekend (July 11 and 12).

Now in its third year, the Open Gardens event is growing in popularity with thousands expected to attend.

This year 26 gardens will be open including for the first time, a community garden which was once wasteland and has now been transformed by a group of neighbours.

Several of the gardens will be serving refreshments, selling plants and St James Church and the Southam Heritage Collection will also be open.

Organiser Lesley Smith said: “Southam Open Gardens is becoming ever more popular and this year we have some really interesting and unusual gardens open to the public including the Convent Cemetery and the Grange Hall peace grounds.”

Entry is £5 for adults for the weekend and free for children.

All proceeds to Southam in Bloom who provide and maintain hanging baskets and troughs in the town.
