The beautiful village of Tattenhall in Cheshire

Garden Society visit Glorious Garden Gems

Home » News » Glorious Garden Gems

TGS Members and friends had a memorable day this week, visiting three gardens on The Wirral.

A convoy of cars left Tattenhall and went first to Burton village, visiting Briarfield, a remarkable garden spread over a large area of hillside. Liz Carter explained her 40 year project and walked us through her real gem. By chance Briarfield is open this weekend on Sunday 26 June 11am-5pm — see under the NGS yellow book or — well worth a visit.

Then to Ness Gardens, which looked glorious in the June sunshine, for a guided tour with Ted Brabin, a real plant expert and very entertaining to boot.

Finally to Fieldcrest, near Thornton Hough, to hear Christine Davies tell the tale of 12 years of hard work and to share her beautiful garden with us.

All in all an excellent day out — a huge 'thank you' to the organisers and thanks to Joanna Bauldreay for the superb images (click on each to enlarge).
