None more so than Mike and Helen Boothman, who ordinarily at this time of year would be welcoming visitors to the magnificent Mill Farm Garden at Grasby.
Set within 3.5 acres, the garden has an elevated position with panoramic views across the North Lincolnshire Wolds and the Ancholme Valley.
Usually the garden is open to the public every Thursday and Sunday, as well as bank holidays throughout the summer.
There are also regular group visits throughout the year.
For the past 12 years, the garden has been included in the ‘yellow book’, opening for the National Garden Scheme, and for the past five years for Lindsey Lodge Hospice, raising several thousands of pounds.
The garden is tended solely by Mike and Helen, which keeps them very busy.
Helen said: “We are closed obviously at the moment because of Covid-19 and we miss welcoming visitors, but we hope people will enjoy seeing these pictures of what the garden looks like at the moment.
“The closure has allowed us to revamp some parts of the garden and catch up with some outstanding jobs.
“One of the things we have done is started a flower cutting garden.”
