The Gardens have stunning views over St Peter Port. Set in 4 acres, the upper garden is mainly lawned and is surrounded by herbaceous borders. There are many statues adding further interest. The Lower Garden has a fine example of a Victorian glasshouse in which can be found vines and a selection of cactus. Moving on from here is the vegetable garden and fruit trees. Jazz band. £5 admission / children free

Victorian Walled Garden, Saumarez Park, Castel
2pm - 5pm
Explore Guernsey’s hidden gem at the uniquely restored Gardens and period glasshouses. Since 2006 volunteers have lovingly reclaimed a derelict site to become a thriving, productive garden growing over 300 Heritage fruit, flower and vegetable plants. Explore the Nectar Bar for pollinators. Join a garden tour and watch craft demos. Learn more about herbs and seed sowing. Revive with refreshments and home-made cakes.  Visit ‘La Choppe’ selling garden produce, plants and locally made arts and crafts. £5 admission / children free

Le Grand Dixcart, Sark
11am - 3pm
The gardens surround an old farmhouse and date from 1565. They are formed into five distinct areas over 2 acres and are cultivated for beauty, wildlife and food. There is a large mandala style permaculture area providing many different vegetables and cutting flowers alongside habitats for wildlife, ponds, lawns, herbaceous borders, two glasshouses, woodland, sculptures and an orchard. Wheelchair access around Sark can be difficult but once you are actually at the gardens there are just grassy slopes and paths. £4 admission / £2 children
