One of the area’s most attractive gardens, especially at this time of year, is to open to the public.
The stunning four-acre garden at Little Ponton Hall, home of Mrs Alistair McCorquodale, opens on Saturday and Sunday, February 15 and 16.
A fabulous display of snowdrops and aconites are a feature at this time of year, and there are spacious lawns and a cedar tree which is over 200 years old.
A stream meanders through into the spring garden and there is a walk.
Within the garden is a formal walled kitchen garden and listed dovecote with a recently developed herb garden.
Victorian greenhouses show many plants from exotic locations.
Admission is £5 (children free) and proceeds go to the National Gardens Scheme.
Light refreshments and teas will be available in aid of the church next door, which will also be open and there will be plants for sale and other stalls.
The gardens will be open from 11am to 4pm on both days.
Little Ponton Hall is half a mile east of the A1 south of Grantham.
