National Garden Scheme returns to Rutland
Gardeners are preparing to showcase their efforts with the return of the National Garden Scheme.
Ten Rutland gardens will be open to the public between March and September, providing enjoyment for visitors and raising money for good causes.
Owners will also be on hand to offer advice.
The first garden to open in Rutland will be Gunthorpe Hall on Sunday, March 17 between 2 and 5pm when people can view the large country garden with daffodils, kitchen garden and ha-ha.
Burrough Hall at Burrough on the Hill will follow on Sunday, May 5 from 2-5pm with its mature trees, shrubs and countryside views.
Future events will take place in Whissendine on May 2, Ashwell on May 19, Burley on May 26, Market Overton on June 16 and July 3, Wing on June 23 and Barrowden on September 12. Admission ranges from £5 to £10 for adults with full times and details available at www.ngs.org.uk
Last year’s open gardens in Rutland raised £38,000 for good causes.
