By Arrangement gardens in Cheshire

If you’re looking to organise a private visit to a garden, whether it be for a local group or for friends and family, a By Arrangement can provide something a little different. In Cheshire there’s a range of gardens available for private By Arrangement visits, find out more below.

The Well House, Malpas

1 acre cottage garden, bridge over natural stream, spring bulbs, perennials, herbs and shrubs. Triple ponds. Adjoining ¾ acre field made into wildflower meadow; first seeding late 2003. Large bog area of kingcups and ragged robin. February for snowdrop walk. Opens for By Arrangement visits all year.

The Wonky Garden, Widnes

The flower garden is our show garden, the focus for horticultural therapy/nature based activities. It has large herbaceous borders, trees and shrubs, planting focussing on the senses and wildlife. We grow masses of edibles and cut flowers in the allotment garden, 80% is donated to support food poverty. The children’s ‘explorify’ garden nestles between the two and is used to support young families. Opens for By Arrangement visits from April to October.
