Times 9am - 5pm

Fair and gardens: £3.00 in aid of the National Garden Scheme (NGS)

We are really thrilled to be part of Potterton's NGS opening in 2018 with a great plant fair: our only one in Lincolnshire!

Pottertons are a stalwart of our plant fairs and we are really looking forward to visiting them at home and getting to see to where all those lovely alpines are grown and also getting the chance to share thei beautiful garden for the day

The large garden contains many planting features including alpine rockeries with pool, stream and waterfall, raised beds, troughs, tufa stone bed, crevice garden, woodland and peat beds. All extensively planted with hundreds of varieties of alpines, bulbs and woodland or shade loving plants, providing lots of colour and interest all year round but will be at their peak in late May.

Visitors are welcome to explore the garden and nursery.

Expert help or advice is freely available from the nursery's experienced team.

You could also see a wealth of wildlife including Woodpecker, Treecreeper, Nuthatch, Warblers, House Martin and Buzzard and also lots of  butterflies and dragonflies; the garden has even had visits from a Kingfisher.

There will be cream teas and light refreshments served in the garden with both covered and open air seating available.

Entry to fair and gardens: £3.00 per person in aid of the National Garden Scheme.
