Bridgemere Show Gardens awarded RHS Partner Garden status!26th January 2023
Bridgemere Show Gardens, Nantwich, Cheshire, are once again restored to their former glory following an extensive restoration and have now been awarded Partner Garden status by the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS). RHS Partner Garden status is awarded to gardens which offer inspiration to keen gardeners through high standards of design and/or planting.
The 6-acre Show Gardens were founded by John Ravenscroft in the 1980s to inspire amateur gardeners and they include 8 RHS Chelsea, Hampton Court and Tatton gold and silver medal award-winning show gardens from 1988 to 2022. It is the only place in the UK where you can see a large collection of RHS award-winning gardens from the past, to the present day.
The Gardens include 15 individual gardens and display plants of national and county importance. In spring and summer, colourful bedding displays are planted with over 20,000 tulips and dahlias.
NEW for 2023! Two new show gardens will be opened, the ‘Beautiful Abandonment Garden’, which won a Silver Gilt in 2022 at RHS Hampton Court and the Japanese inspired Garden. Bridgemere will also be launching a season ticket for the gardens which will give year-round discounted entry for garden visitors and priority access for garden events.
Alan Roper, Managing Director of the Blue Diamond Group and the Bridgemere Show Gardens said: “RHS awarding us partner status is an important milestone in regaining the national public recognition these Gardens once had, before 13 years of decline under Wyevale Garden Centre ownership. Bridgemere is looking forwards to welcoming RHS members to the gardens for 2023”
