More about Firsby Manor
Firsby Manor is a garden of three acres surrounding a Georgian farmhouse comprising interlinked areas which vary in colour and mood. The owners are members of Lincolnshire Daffodil Society and so there are many different cultivars to see during late March and April.
There is a woodland with mature trees and a profusion of bulbs: daffodils succeed snowdrops and are followed by bluebells. The grounds around an adjacent pond are allowed to grow wild encouraging wildlife and butterflies to thrive. The 'secret' garden is sheltered by yew hedges and an old north facing wall with hostas and ferns facing more tender plants in the south border. A shingle drive, with cottage garden favourites on either side, leads to the main lawn where the garden is still evolving. There are shrubs of different greens and texture and white flowers to compliment the simplicity of the house. Lastly, a red border inspired by Hidcote is full of tulips in April and May but comes into its own later in the summer when dahlias are in flower.
