Group Visits 2021
We specialise in garden visits for clubs and societies, coaches welcome with a minimum of 12 people per visit up to a maximum of 53 from 19th May- 9th August any day or evening.
The Garden is 1½ acres split into different areas, a hot Mediterranean garden with bottle wall and folly for sun loving plants and a walled garden. We have recently Converted the Victorian fern house into an alpine house . There is a woodland walkway for shade loving plants and a large stream fed pond planted with a wide range of unusual foliage & flowering plants, alongside climbing roses, clematis, shrubs & herbaceous borders. In the garden there is Sculpture and a hardy plant nursery, with a wide selection of perennial plants of interest to the keen gardener & flower arranger. There is a large garden studio & conservatory with indoor seating as insurance against the weather. The garden has been featured in Lancashire Life, Flora Magazine, Gardens illustrated and Lancashire Magazine.
A Gallery is open in the garden to house the sculpture of Thompson Dagnall, this is in the form of a traditional log cabin made of whole larch logs with a green roof.
