The garden at 2 Mill Cottage, South Willingham home of the garden designer Jo Rouston, opens for the National Garden Scheme this Saturday, July 2, from 12 noon to 5pm.

This is a garden of several defined spaces, packed with interesting features, unusual plants and well placed seating areas.

Visitors will see an original engine shed, a working well, raised beds using local rock with a small pond, together with clipped box, alpines, roses, summerhouses and a water feature.

There is a box and lavender hedge leading to a greenhouse and herb garden.

A late season bed and woven metal and turf tree seat are all within this very good garden, which featured in Gardening News.

Admission is £3, children free, with home made teas and plants also on sale.
