Spilsby garden to open for National Garden Scheme


The latest local garden to open as part of the National Garden Scheme (NGS) is the Old Rectory, at East Keal, Spilsby.

The garden is at the home of Mrs Ruth Ward and is open on Sunday, April, 27, between 2pm and 5pm and again on Sunday, June, 1.

A National Garden Spokesman said: “The garden is in a beautifully situated position with fine views. A rambling cottage garden on different levels, falling naturally into separate areas, with changing effects and atmosphere.

Steps and paths lead you on, with seats well placed for appreciating special views and plant combinations or for just relaxing and enjoying the peace.”

The garden has a dry border, vegetable garden, orchard, woodland walk and wild flower meadow.

Mrs Ward will be present to answer any questions that the visitor may want to ask.

Admission to the garden is £3 and Children’s entry is free.

Home-made teas and plants will be for sale and dogs on short leads are welcome.

Visitors are also welcome on additional days, by appointment until November.
