Neighbouring gardens in Caistor’s Horsemarket open this weekend for the National Gardens Scheme.

Hope House and Ramada will be open this Sunday, June 29, from 1pm to 5pm.

A country-style garden in a town, Hope House has a small walled garden attached to an interesting Georgian house with roses, perennials, shrubs, trees, fruit and a small raised vegetable area.

A wildlife pond and formal water trough feature in the dining area and the garden has all round colour and interest in a tranquil space created by its garden designer owner, Sue Neave.

It received a Gold award for Best Front Garden at East Midlands in Bloom.

In contrast, Ramada, home of Peter and Gwyn Thompson, has a hillside garden with terraced herbaceous borders filled with perennials for year round interest, a vegetable garden and fruit trees, plus a small pond fed by natural spring.

Combined admission is £3.50; children free.

Dogs on short leads welcome.

Home-made teas are on sale at the nearby Caistor Arts & Heritage Centre.

The National Gardens Scheme raises more than £2.6 million every year for national nursing, gardening and other charitable causes.
