Lincolnshire is located in the East Midlands of England, with a long coastline adjacent to the North Sea. The county town is the city of Lincoln, from which the county received its name.
There are several geographical sub-regions in the area, including: the Lincolnshire Wolds, consisting of rolling chalk hills; The Lincolnshire Fens, a coastal plain and marshy region in the southeast; the North Sea coast around Grimsby and Scunthorpe; and the Kesteven Uplands, rolling limestone hills in the southwest. As well as limestone and chalk, the areas comprise gravel and sand. Lincolnshire is also home to several nature reserves, including wetland areas and limewood forests. Much of the countryside is farmed intensively, yielding crops such of wheat, barley, sugar beet, and vegetable such as potatoes, cabbages, cauliflowers, and onions.
Soil in the south of the county is the most fertile, so homeowners in this region can easily grow lush green lawns and an array of fruit and vegetables from spring through to the summer. Propagation in this county is supported by a cool to mild climate, high number of sunshine hours, and an average monthly rainfall of 50mm, ensuring reliable weather for plant growth in any garden.
