A St Albans gardening centre has invited everyone to a seasonal celebration.
More than 50 varieties of dahlia will be on display in both a field and Celebration Tent at the Aylett Nurseries' Autumn Festival this September.
Located on North Orbital Road, there will also be a Festival Tea Tent, Tropical Butterfly House and a chance to help judge a competition.
People from the local community have submitted more than 40 creative displays to the contest, named Around the World in a Crate.
The festival will take place from September 5 to 15.
Aylett Nurseries was created by a former governor of Oaklands College, Roger Aylett, and the site won 36 consecutive Gold Medals at the Royal Horticultural Society shows between 1961 and 1999.
