The Scotland’s Gardens scheme turns its focus on St Monans on Sunday when an open gardens afternoon will take visitors on a trail round the village.

Nora Gardner is leading the charge opening her garden at Inverie, along by the Auld Kirk.,

But, Nora explained, she’s just one of a group of keen gardeners opening their gardens to the public, many for the first time, and two are community gardens that have been adopted by local gardeners – including the site of a Council park bench.

“There will be a wide range of styles of gardens and plants to see,” she said, “including some edible planting and one garden that has been professionally designed and is opening for the first time.”

As well as seeing the gardens, visitors will be offered plants for sale during the afternoon, and teas will be available at the Auld Kirk. Profits from the event are split between Scotland’s Gardens and a nominated local charity and the St Monans gardeners have chosen the village’s Auld Kirk. Tickets for the event cost £4 available from Nora at Inverie, including a guide.
