Easton Walled Gardens were abandoned from 1951 when Easton Hall was demolished. Renovation work on the 12 acres of gardens started in 2002. There is a Yew Tunnel, Cut Flower Garden, Cottage Garden, Turf Maze and two glasshouses. President Franklin Roosevelt described this garden as...'A dream of Nirvana..almost too good to be true.' The garden is as interesting for the planting as its long history.
Just come across this negative review of Easton Walled Gardens, I have to disagree - my husband and I visited during the snowdrops and had a really lovely time. We spent over an hour looking at 1,000's of snowdrops in the gardens and were fascinated by the history and restoration project that had taken place. There was even a talk on the snowdrops which we really enjoyed...plus we bought some unusual snowdrop varieties to plant for ourselves at home. We really want to go back in February and see the snowdrops at Easton again.
If you are planning a visit to see the Snowdrops my advice would be not to bother. We travelled for over an hour to see their display as advertised on their website.I could have seen more at home and there are hardly any other Spring flowers to back them up. How they warrant charging £5.00 (soon to be £5.25)admission,and get away with it I haven't a clue. Hodsock at Blyth Nottinghamshire has far better displays and they charge £4.50, and that is something really worth visiting. I have only rated Easton walled gardens a one star because I couldn't rate it any lower!!
Easton Walled Gardens is really interesting, there is something different to see every year. We have been visiting since it opened a few years ago and we are amazed at the work that has been done. It describes itself as 'Lincolnshire's lost garden' We went during sweet pea week and spent ages smelling different types.
