Come and visit our beautiful one acre garden near Lymm in the north of Cheshire. We are open to the public for just one weekend each month , April to October. It is always the second weekend in each month. Please check the calendar to the right of the page for dates.
We welcome group visits at other times. Please get in touch if you would like to arrange a visit. We are also open on other occasions for our well known and varied courses.
Tea, coffee and home made cakes are available in the greenhouse each open weekend and there are always plants for sale, often unusual varieties.

The garden is open as usual, with plenty of autumn colour on the Parrotia persica, Acers and Liquidamber, as well as apple themed home baking to enjoy with your tea and coffee.
