SPRING blossom and bulbs will delight visitors to a stunning garden rarely open to the public, this weekend.
Little Ponton Hall, at Little Ponton, two miles south of Grantham, is opening its gardens in aid of the National Gardens Scheme on Sunday. The gardens feature spacious lawns, dominated by a 200-year-old cedar tree.
In the walled vegetable garden are Victorian greenhouses, full of exotic plants, and a listed dovecote. Adjoining the garden is the tiny village church dedicated to St Guthlac, to which proceeds from sales of teas will go.
The gardens will be open from 2pm to 5pm and admission is £5 for adults (children free) and there will be a sale of plants.
The next chance to admire the gardens will be on Sunday, June 24, when this magical, secret garden should be a riot of roses and clematis.
