This Sunday, 11 local landowners will open their gardens to the public as part of Scotland’s Gardens, supporting national charities.

After the overwhelming success of ‘Gardens in the Burgh’ two years ago, this will be the first chance to pay a return visit to the gardens of Pittenweem.

Four of the participating gardens will have plant stalls and three locations will be providing refreshments, ranging from simple garden teas to seasonal strawberries and cream.

In addition, afternoon teas and coffees will be served in the pubs and cafés of Pittenweem.

Several new participants this year include the garden behind the former Baptist Church, the ‘Doll’s House Garden’ at Fife Council’s recycling site and the ‘Driftwood Garden.

Those interested in growing their own veg can visit the Pittenweem allotments, while those who want to develop their own gardens can enjoy a cottage garden and several walled gardens with colourful ornamental shrubs and trees.

Proceeds will go to ‘Fife Women’s Aid’ and the Local Life (RNLI). The gardens in Pittenweem are open from 11 a.m.-5 p.m.
