Organised by an award-winning volunteer group that last year became a registered charity, the event offers an opportunity to view a range of gardens highlighting the suburb’s horticultural diversity.

Flower-filled courtyards, traditional family gardens, allotments and public spaces will be open from 1pm until 5.30pm.

An addition to the Open Gardens Weekend is the Moor Green Allotment site on the edge of Cannon Hill Park.

“The sheer size of the area is likely to come as quite a revelation to visitors,” said John Mattick, chair of the Open Gardens Group.

“We have organised live refreshment points on route offering traditional afternoon teas and delicious cakes.

“This year’s children’s trail has an Olympic theme and on Sunday there will be an energetic performance by the Border Morris Brethren of Kings Heath.”

Carol Miller, chair of Moseley in Bloom, said: “We want to ensure that Moseley continues to be one of the most attractive villages in the region so the funds we raise will help us continue our work to improve and regenerate the area.”

Billesley Lane Allotments will also be showing off conservation projects that have been undertaken there.

Tickets cost £5 or £7.50 for both days. Volunteers are being sought to help.
