A WORCESTERSHIRE village is bucking the trend that August is a dull month for gardening.

Two stunning private gardens off the main street of Offenham will welcomed visitors under the National Gardens Scheme, and to raise funds for charity.

The fiery colours of late summer will be on show on Saturday, August 16 and Sunday August 17, from 11am to 5pm, at Langdale and Willoway.

Langdale is a recently developed plantsman’s garden and has been designed for all year interest.

Willoway has an oriental area containing ponds, waterfalls and acers.

Teas and plants will be for sale at both venues.

Combined admission will be £3. Children will get in free.
