Ashford CT21 4PD www.aspinallfoundation.org/port-lympne / 01303 264647 The allotments adjacent to St Clement’s Church will go on show alongside the glorious gardens of south east Sandwich at the annual Little Gardens of Sandwich. For the first time in the 35-year history of the event, anyone interested in growing their own produce will have the chance to wander around the central Sandwich allotments, ask questions of the owners, and hopefully be inspired to apply for their own little vegetable or fruit patch. However, the hundreds of garden lovers who attend every year will not be disappointed either as eight very different gardens set behind ancient walls of this charming medieval town will also be open. After visiting the gardens and allotments, cream teas will be available in the St Clement’s Church Hall while a number of specialist plant nurseries will be located in the churchyard displaying and selling a wide variety of perennials, annuals, shrubs and herbs. From 2pm.
