Old vegetable varieties on sale.
Allesley Park Walled Garden Group is harvesting some of the new season's vegetables - including 150-year-old varieties of lettuce, purple cauliflower, black radish and white carrots. Also on sale will be Sharpe's Express - white floury potatoes first bred about 1900.
The sale takes place from 10.30am to 12.30pm.
June Babb, chairman of the Allesley Park Walled Garden Group, said: "We hope people will try some of these tasty old varieties and perhaps grow them for themselves so that we can all keep a bit of our horticultural heritage alive."
