The two-acre garden at the Manor House in Hagworthingham home of Gill Maxim and David O’Connor opens for the National Garden Scheme (NGS) on Sunday, August 17, from 2pm to 5pm.

The garden is on a south facing slope, partly terraced and well protected by established trees and shrubs.

It has been redeveloped over 11 years with natural and formal ponds, shrub roses, a laburnum walk, a hosta border, gravel bed and other areas mainly planted with hardy perennials, trees and shrubs.

Admission to the garden is £3 and children are admitted free (share to Holy Trinity, Hagworthingham).

Home-made teas will be available as well as plants for sale.

Dogs on short leads are welcome and visitors and groups are also welcome by appointment until September.

Call 01507 588530 to book.

The garden can be found at Manor House, Hagworthingham, Spilsby, PE23 4LN, five miles east of Horncastle.

The NGS Scheme raises over £2.6 million every year for national nursing, gardening and other charitable causes. It is the single largest benefactor to Macmillan Cancer Support and Marie Curie Cancer Care.
