Lincolnshire’s Easton Walled Garden will be presenting its botanical art exhibition once again in February 2019, featuring work from two renowned artists.
The exhibition, titled Plants & Pollinators, will be taking place between 16th February and 17th March and will see two artists, well respected in the field of botanical illustration and painting, interpret the fascinating lives of bees and the plants they pollinate.
The exhibition, which takes place in the restored Coach House, will run in conjunction with Snowdrop Week where visitors can enjoy thousands of the white blooms, and will remain open for viewing on usual open days.
Entry is included in the garden admission fee.
