Tom Williamson is opening his beautiful garden under the Scotland Open Garden Scheme, and will split any money raised between the Scheme and his own nominated cause - Animal Adoption, a charity which saves and rehomes small animals.

Tom’s Thornton Avenue garden has more thn 550 plans on display in a relatively modest space, and is the result of tireless effort on his part.

He manages it all despite sight problems, using his gardening as a refuge from personal difficulty.

The garden is open from noon until 4pm on the day, admission £3 - children free, but must be accompanied by an adult.
