Southsea gardeners are throwing open their garden gates for charity tomorrow.

You can visit 85 and 87 St Ronan’s Road and 27 and 28 St Ronan’s Avenue to enjoy their gardens from 2pm until 6pm.

It costs £5 to get into the four gardens where tea and cake will be available. Parking is in Craneswater School, St Ronan’s Road.

All four will also open on Saturday, July 4, from 5pm until 8pm.

The £6 admission that day also includes a glass of wine. All proceeds go to charity.

The openings are part of the National Gardens Scheme which raises money for charities including Macmillan Cancer Support and Marie Curie Cancer Care.

These are private gardens which the owners maintain to a high standard, growing varying plants of interest.

Some feature award-winning design and were featured on television last year. Others specialise in tender and exotic planting.

If you’d like to get involved in community gardening at the Greenhouse alongside Canoe Lake, call us on 07530 913 211 or visit southseagreenhouse.co.uk.
