Pottertons Nursery & Garden

Sunday 28th May 2017

Times 10am - 4pm

Entry to fair and gardens: £3.00 in aid of the National Garden Scheme (NGS)

NEW FOR 2017

We are really thrilled to be part of Rob and Jackie Potterton's NGS opening in 2017 with a new plant fair: our first ever in Lincolnshire!

Rob Potterton is a stalwart of our plant fairs and we are really looking forward to visiting him at home and getting to see to where all those lovely alpines are grown and also getting the chance to share Rob and Jackie's beautiful garden for the day

Rob and Jackie's 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 can join one of the nursery tours that will be conducted throughout the day (these will be run approximately every hour).

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.

In addition you can discover the story of this family run garden and nursery through a photographic display detailing the history and development of the nursery, exhibitions, show awards including Chelsea Golds and the making of the garden.

 

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

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