The gardens are free to look round whenever the nursery is open (apart from a few charity open days when there is a small charge). We specialise in herbaceous perennials, grasses, woodland plants, cottage garden plants and have the largest selection of hardy Chrysanthemums for sale in Europe.We are not a garden centre and so only sell plants, these have been propagated from the gardens. The gardens are open to guided tours (fee required) and we have coach parties coming from all over the country. We are included in the prestigious Gardens to visit 2013 guide and the online Gardens-guideIf you are interested in plants, gardens or just an inspirational, peaceful, relaxing setting for a summers afternoon come to us.

The British Civil Wars were fought across England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland from 1638 to 1652. Newark, held by the Royalists, played a major role, undergoing three sieges with the last of these in 1645-46 caused terrible suffering. Historians have gained a unique insight into the town's experience with the discovery of a treasure trove of previously unexamined papers in local archives. Period invoices, petitions, accounts and records reveal how ordinary people coped with being caught in the cross-fire between Cavalier and Roundhead. This amazing new material will be used together with state-of-the-art technology and hundreds of previously unseen relics to create a unique museum experience. Michael Constantine, from The National Civil War Centre, said: "The civil wars caused huge misery, but also laid the foundations for our modern state. Yet for many it is an unknown episode. We want to change that. It was a cruel conflict, not a joust between gentlemen. The First World War was a dreadful slaughter, claiming the lives of 700,000 British soldiers, or about 1.5% of the population. But the civil wars saw about 4% of people die in Brother took up arms against brother and the lives of ordinary people were shattered. No village, hamlet or town escaped the turmoil." « less
