There will be a chance to snoop around gardens in Seaford and raise money for charity from June 15-16 during the National Gardens Festival.

Gardens will include Barrack Cottage (Sat only), 1 Buckthorn Close (Sat only), Elizabeth Cottage (Sun only) and 8 Sandgate Close and Driftwood, 4 Marine Drive, (both all weekend), from 11am to 5pm.

Admission costs £5 for all gardens, but children go free.

Visitors will see five completely unique gardens, ranging from a 2012 Daily Mail National Garden Competition finalist garden and one featured in Amateur Gardening Magazine though green and tranquil havens to a new garden with 3D landscaping.

The new gardens are Elizabeth Cottage, a small but delightful garden stocked with cottage plants, and 1 Buckthorn Close, an integrated combination of flowers, fruits and vegetables.

Money raised from the nationwide festival will go to cancer charities Macmillan and Marie Curie.

Other gardens opening in the East Sussex area will be: Follers Manor, Alfriston, both days, Firle Walled Herb Garden, Sun 16, and Old Vicarage Firle, Sun 16. Visit or in the Yellow Book.
