The gardens have been designed by Adam Frost, from Stamford, who wanted to install A Rural Muse at the venue, in Helpston.

The garden won a gold award at last year’s RHS Chelsea Flower Show and was inspired by John Clare himself.

It was opened to the public on Saturday and includes a variety of plants and features.

David Dykes, duty manager at John Clare Cottage, said: “The gardens look absolutely beautiful, especially in the sunshine.
