Residents are taking part in the group’s annual secluded gardens event, which runs from Thursday, June 28 until July 2.

Herbaceous borders and characterful trees and plants will be looking bright and beautiful across the four days, with the aim to raise as much money for Sidmouth in Bloom.

There will also be refreshments and plants on sale at some of the venues.

Visitors will be able to view 14 gardens across the town by purchasing tickets from Sidmouth Tourist information centre or on the gate.
