The gardens at Hall Farm Harpswell opens this weekend for the National Gardens Scheme.

This garden is owned by very knowledgeable gardeners, Pam and Mark Tatum, and well worth a visit.

It has also featured in Landscape magazine.

There is lots to see across the three-acre site, encompassing mature areas, formal and informal areas, plus a new parterre filled with salad crops, herbs and annuals.

There is also a sunken garden, courtyard with a rill, a walled Mediterranean garden, double herbaceous borders, lawns, a pond and giant chess set and a flower and grass meadow.

A short walk takes you to a medieval moat.

Opening times are 10am to 5pm this Saturday and Sunday, June 28 and 29.

Admission is £3.50; children free.

Dogs on short leads welcome.

The garden, which can be found on the A631 seven miles east of Gainsborough and just over one mile west of Caenby Corner, will be open again on September 7.
