This year, you will also be able to purchase copies of Moseley in Bloom’s ‘Blooming Marvellous Cake Book’ at the bargain price of £5 per copy.

The gardens on display will range from small but delightful urban spaces to large gardens with magnificent vistas, plus some beautiful community gardens as well. You can choose the garden you love best while enjoying one of the delicious cakes on sale and listening to one of a number of musical acts that will be performing in different gardens over the weekend. See you there!
