The garden at Nova Lodge in Roughton Moor near Woodhall Spa will open as part of the National Gardens Scheme on Sunday (June 22) and again on Sunday July 6.

Work on the garden initially started in 2009 and it covers just under an acre. It is set within mature trees.

There are herbaceous beds, borders, rose and hosta beds, shrubs, ferns and grasses, together with large lawns and two ponds.

There is also a summerhouse, small vegetable and herb areas, two greenhouses and seating for visitors to enjoy all areas of the garden.

Home to Leo Boshier, it has featured in a number of prestigious publications.

Admission for the Gardens Scheme event is £3 for adults with children allowed in free of charge. Opening times are 12-5pm.

Homemade teas will be available and plants will be on sale.

Apart from Sunday, visitors are also welcome by appointment from June to July for groups of ten or more.
