THE Tamborine Mountain Garden Club is gearing up for its annual and very popular Springtime on the Mountain Open Gardens Trail in September.

This seasonal event is the volunteers' big fundraiser each year, enabling them to continue the work of maintaining and developing the Tamborine Mountain Botanic Gardens.

Convenor Di Howard says 2017 is the 33rd anniversary of Springtime on the Mountain.

"Popularity just keeps increasing with up to 3000 visitors over the three days," she said.

"It keeps our botanic gardens going.

"Only one of the gardens has been open before.

"Tamborine Mountain has lots to offer with the shopping and the climate."

The trail is open on September 22, 23 and 24, from 9am to 4pm.

Seven gardens will be open to visitors, with plants available to buy.

A café will be set up in one of the gardens with a sausage sizzle and devonshire teas.

Trail passes to all gardens are $20, and single garden entry $5.
