As the new year progresses, staff and volunteers at the National Trust’s Peckover House in Wisbech are working hard in preparation for the 2018 season.
Conservation is always a very important part and this year visitors will be able to take a look at what goes on being closed doors.
There will be the chance of attending a conservation talk in the house.
“Opening the garden to our visitors at this time of year has become something of a tradition,” said house manager Ben Rickett.
“It is the perfect opportunity to explore and enjoy the garden in its early season. Flowering shrubs and a host of colourful bulbs are very much in evidence, as are a multitude of more delicate plants which can be seen in the glasshouses.”

With soup and hot drinks available in the Reed Barn, a stroll around the garden and the conservation talk in the house at 2pm, the early season at Peckover has much to offer.
