Since 2001, Ursula has restored this ancient 12 acre garden from a wilderness to the nationally important garden it once was. Ursula is constantly working to evolve and develop the gardens, ensuring that there is always something new and noteworthy to see.
The revival of these ‘lost gardens’ of Lincolnshire has been on a very tight budget and what you see there today is the result of 15 years of hard work and determination from Ursula and her very small team.
Innovative planting schemes can be found throughout The Pickery (or cut flower garden), The Cottage Garden, Vegetable Garden, Meadows, The White Space Garden, Orchard and the Velvet and Poppy Borders, all set within 12 acres of stunning space.
To celebrate the re-emergence of this historical site, we would like you to join us for an afternoon of gardening inspiration and insight. We have invited 3 influential and informative speakers within the gardening industry, to come and give us a glimpse into their worlds;
Matthew is a well-respected garden designer, writer, radio and television broadcaster and lecturer. His particular areas of horticultural interest include environmentally sensitive gardening, wildlife and landscapes. Matthew will be speaking about ‘My Chelsea Journey’
Since its foundation in 1804, the Royal Horticultural Society has been at the forefront of horticultural practice, research and education in the UK, and today it reaches millions of people through its gardens, shows, community programmes, publications and membership. Guy will be talking us through the plans for the new RHS garden site in Manchester, the 5th of it’s kind.
Laura will be talking about the wonderful work of Perennial, a charity which provides free support to anyone who is working in, or has worked in the horticulture industry in the UK.
We really look forward to seeing you at this very special Midsummer Party and hope you will enjoy a glass of champagne and some delicious, homemade lunch with us. There will be goody bags for every guest. You are, of course, welcome to take pictures on the day and Ursula Cholmeley and Senior Gardener, Stephen Marsland, will be available to speak to during the event.
Thank you from the team at Easton Walled Gardens

5 miles south of Grantham you pass through Great Ponton on the A1. Continue for about 3 miles passing the park and gardens on your left. Turn left off the A1, signposted B6403 to Easton. 1 mile later turn Left into the village of Easton, as above. Go down into the village and follow the signs to the Car Park, which is on the left hand side.
N.B. Our postcode is NG33 5AP. However, if you have satellite navigation it will try and bring you into the gardens from the A1. This is not possible, you need to come in off the B6403, as on the map.
