Posted by Charles Etchells on 6 January 2018

Join me Gardener Steve on Saturday 17th February for a day trip to Easton Walled Gardens for its annual snowdrop walk and a stop off at Belton Garden Centre. 

Easton Walled Gardens nestle in the beautiful Lincolnshire countryside in a rolling valley and has been owned by the Cholmeley family for over 400 years. Its Snowdrop displays attract visitors each year, around these naturalized plantings Hellebores and Aconites can be seen. Throughout the upper gardens you can see pretty groupings of early flowering perennials and small bulbs. All guests will receive a hot spiced drink, Grantham gingerbread and an information sheet covering history, origin, botany and growing Snowdrops.   

Belton Garden Centre is a family run centre on the Belton estate and was built in the former formal walled gardens of Belton House. Time will be spent here to browse at your leisure or have a cuppa in the coffee shop!      

With a full day ahead of you, your day starts off with a Breakfast roll and a hot drink from the Seven Oaks Inn, Stanton By Dale which is where the coach will depart and it will be £30.00 per person this includes breakfast, coach travel, entrance and refreshments at Easton. For more information or to book your place, You can call the booking line on 07413 408751 or email or myself at places are limited and very popular so early booking is advised.  Me and the Blue Skies The Limit crew look forward to hearing from you soon.
