A DATE for all garden lovers' diaries is this Sunday. This is when for the third year in a row three of West Bexhill's most stunning gardens will be open to the public under the National Garden Scheme.

On offer will be a gentle stroll around the gardens with the added treat of teas and scrumptious home-made cakes. A wide variety of plants will also be available to buy and, will include the incredible Echiums, which can grow to 12ft high pillars of flowers.

The gardens are located at 1 Ashcombe Drive; 64 Cranston Avenue; 66 Cranston Avenue and, will be open from 11am - 5pm with a combined entrance fee for all three gardens of 4.00 for adults - there is no charge for children.

The National Garden Scheme (NGS), is a charitable trust that selects and supports open garden owners with publicity and publishes the famous Yellow Book.

The charity provides funds to many beneficiaries including Macmillan Cancer Support and over the past 20 years has raised 25 million to fund Macmillan, Help the Hospices and Crossroads Caring for Carers.

Last year the three Bexhill gardens raised more than 1,000. The owners are hoping to raise even more this year.
