Lincolnshire Open Gardens 2014

More dates will appear if notified. See foot of page for email link

Dr John Ketteringham, who has managed this page for several years, is retiring from maintaining it due to age and health. (He will be 85 in October 2014). It has been agreed that the page will continue to be maintained for 2015 by Aidan Hopkins, a former resident of Lincolnshire.

Lincolnshire Tourist Board no longer publishes its Gardens and Nurseries Open booklet, so John Ketteringham compiled this list for the convenience of those who also like garden visiting. We have only been able to include basic details, and suggest you ask for a leaflet at the first gardens you visit - which will give you a detailed description of each garden. Postcodes are shown for the benefit of SatNav users, but with no guarantee of accuracy. Please verify before using! Addresses should be postally correct, but may not reflect local geography. There is a key to common abbreviations at the foot of this page. Organizations in grey did not or have not yet supplied details.

Please send additions or amendments to Aidan C A Hopkins, 14 Harpesford Avenue, VIRGINIA WATER, GU25 4RD. See foot for email link

Information sent on paper may well be subject to delay - please use email for speed!
