RESIDENTS in Portishead are being asked to share the secrets of their gardens this summer.

Portishead in Bloom (PiB) is looking for more people to take part in the Open Gardens weekend on June 8 and 9.

The event sees people visit a variety of gardens detailed in a programme, some of which also offer teas, charity book sales, live music and stalls selling arts and crafts.

This is the main fundraising event of the year for the voluntary group which tends many of the town’s public floral displays and gardens all year round.

A PiB spokesman said: “It would be lovely to have more open gardens this year; even small gardens can be very interesting to visitors. We are also looking for people to join our Friends of Portishead in Bloom group that meets regularly for work parties. “
