An Ayrshire garden centre has launched tickets for its popular pumpkin picking sessions this autumn.

The picking takes place on selected dates throughout October at The Manor House in West Kilbride.

A spokesperson said:  “The yearly outing to pick your pumpkins, eat cake, plough through hay, and laugh with your family has returned.

“Along with picking your pumpkin and having your refreshments you will be able to walk through the hay maze while the Banjo Boys and Fiddling Skeletons duel out to some of those Yee-Haw Country Old Melodies.

“Your little ones (and adults too) can pick some of our puzzles or colouring pages to work on while having your refreshments.

“You will also be able to pop your heads through our pumpkin stack selfie wall, sit on the hay cart for those super cute Instagram family photos and of course grab your candy bag to have on the trip back home.

“We will have complimentary carving patterns you can pick from too. We look forward to seeing you and your family this Hallowe'en.”
