THURSDAY 8TH AUGUST 2024 Time: 2pm — 4pm

The Norley Bank Farm garden is well stocked with perennials, annuals and shrubs that wraps around this traditional Cheshire farmhouse. At the front of the farmhouse is a relatively new wildflower meadow with beautiful colours.

Adjacent to the house is a 3 -sided perennial herbaceous border, with stunning combinations of planting.  Around the house are small courtyards, nooks and crannies with collections of plants in pots. 

Beyond the herbaceous borders is a greenhouse surrounded by a cut flower and nursery garden and beyond that a new orchard with seating for teas and coffees. 

Beyond the house is a vegetable garden with more sweet peas and cutting flowers. This leads to a large meadow area with paths mown through leading to a large wildlife pond with water lilies, a backdrop of pollinating flowers and a recently formed stumpery.

All set in about two acres with free range hens, donkeys and coloured Ryeland sheep (it is after all a farm). The owner, Margaret Holding, is a real plantswoman and sometimes has plants for sale, mostly propagated by her.

The farm will be opening through the National Garden Scheme in July and you can see more stunning photos on the website 
Cost: £12
