Easton Walled Gardens is well known as a snowdrop garden in Lincolnshire and we open especially for visitors to enjoy them.

In 2001, the gardens were lost to nature so we began to clear the gardens of brash and brambles. In patches we could see snowdrops hanging on in the undergrowth. As the light was allowed back in, the snowdrops began to recover. We have encouraged them by dividing and top dressing the bulbs with a natural fertiliser. Now they spread across two banks alongside the river and release wafts of honey scented perfume on sunny days.

WHAT TO SEE DURING SNOWDROP TIME:

Every year the gardens are open for a full week of snowdrops in February. The Gardens are open daily from 16th-24 february 2019 from 11am until 4pm and we welcome 1,000s of visitors and groups.

As well as the snowdrops, we are delighted to be staging an exhibition in the coach house:

Botanical Art Exhibition, ‘Plants and Pollinators’

Come and see two accomplished and talented artists interpret the seasons through botanical illustration and painting. The exhibitors are part of a distinguished group of botanical artists whose history stretches back to the 16th century. Their skills are still used today to record flora throughout the world. They use extraordinary observation skills to reproduce the beauty and detail of the natural world.

The exhibition will take place in the Coach House at Easton Walled Gardens and entry is included with your garden admission fee.

After you’ve enjoyed the exhibition and had a wander around the courtyard looking at the plants available to purchase, turn your attention towards the gardens and visit the history room to see the remarkable story of the gardens revival.
