It's a blooming good weekend to get among the beautiful flora the Northern Midlands has to offer.
Longford Blooms will run over the weekend, encompassing 13 different gardens open to the public from 10am-4pm, with the chance to buy rare plants.
Longford Blooms president Paula Gordon-Smith said the money from the event would go to local charity Helping Hand and the international Care for Africa Foundation.
"Two of [the gardens on offer], both historic, have never been open to the public before and people have not seen behind the hedges," she said.

Longford Blooms is also hosting a mask-wearing competition where patrons can take a photo in their decorated masks, upload it to social media tagging the event and two friends. Then, they will go in a draw to win a gift voucher for Bunnings.
On Sunday only, Woolmers Estate will once again hold its Festival of Roses event to celebrate its garden's beauty, though the event is separate to Longford Blooms and requires different tickets.
The day will be divided into two sessions from 10am-2.20pm and 12.30pm-3pm.

Volunteers coordinator and gardens manager Jane Harrison said the event was important to showcase what Woolmers had in its rose garden, with more than 3000 roses blooming at the same time.
On the day there will be food vans and coffee, entertainment, tours, and stalls selling flowers, gardening products, and ornaments.
Tickets are available to the Festival of Roses via launcestontickets.com.
