A BEAUTIFUL hill-top garden at Grasby will be open this weekend for charity.

Set in more than three acres, the garden at Mill Farm has been developed from scratch by Helen and Mike Boothman over the past eight years.

New beds and features are still evolving, while the remains of a windmill has been adapted into a fernery.

There are also wildlife ponds, vegetable beds and a woodland area with specimen trees.

And not only is there the magnificent garden to see, there are also stunning panoramic views.

Mill Farm gardens will be open this Saturday and Sunday, June 30 and July 1, from 11am-4pm as part of the National Gardens Scheme.

Admission is £3 (children free).

The open garden will also be raising money for St Andrews and Lindsey Lodge Hospices, with 50 per cent of tea sales going to the two charities.
