Overview
More
A family-run, 4.5 acre garden with year-round interest in colour and texture. Goltho Gardens has been dubbed “one of the great gardens of the future”. (Sue Hoy, Lincolnshire Life.)The garden boasts a long grass walk flanked by abundantly-planted borders, from which a network of paths meander. The nut walk, delightful pæony and rose gardens and stunning wildflower meadow are at their best in spring and early summer. A prairie border and gravel garden provide late summer and autumnal interest. The potager’s geometric planting provides the teashop with delicious herbs and vegetables.Many of the plants are propagated on site and can be purchased in the nursery. The teashop serves local food, home-cooked.

Spur of the moment visit on Thursday. The garden is beautifully laid out with a surprising variety of trees, shrubs and flowers and two ponds. Lots of different styles of planting. Everything looked good in spite of the spell of hot, dry weather we're having....More

Goltho Gardens cancelled our group visit with no reason or excuse given, only that "they could not now accommodate us that day". This despite a booking made months previously.

Hi I am sorry for your disappointment unfortunately we were unable to accommodate you on that date and informed you back in March. As we did not receive a booking form to confirm any other date we assumed you had decided against this year
