Garden lovers enjoyed the handiwork put in at a Melton garden for the first time this year on Sunday.
Over 100 people visited the plot at Tresillian House on Dalby Road.
Owner Alison Blythe said: “Everybody ate and we sold out of Ploughman’s lunches. It was very busy and most people arrived before we opened.
“We managed to raise £620 for the National Garden Scheme and Rotary Philippines project.”
For the summer opening of the garden on Sunday, July 2 there will be some trade stalls and a talk by horticultural expert Christina Moulton.
