We are inviting you to join us at the Arley Garden Festival, on 27th & 28th June. The Festival, which regularly attracts over 5,000 visitors, has become one of the highlights of the horticultural year in the North West and follows the Cheshire Show.
Once again there will be 15 specialist plant nurseries being judged in the Floral Marquee to RHS standards and a wide variety of plant nurseries on the show ground. Garden tours throughout the day will be lead by both Lord Ashbrook and Gordon Baillie our Head Gardener. There will also be a Gardening Question Time session on both days with members of The Professional Gardening Guild on the panel. Gordon Baillie our Head Gardener and Lord Ashbrook will also be talking about the history of the Arley gardens at various time during on both days.
There will be garden accessories and Creative Crafts who will host a superb gifts & crafts marquee. Food traders will selling cheese, pies, pastries, ice-cream, cakes, scotch eggs, cider, sweets and more. Enjoy listening to the brass band playing in the afternoon in the east garden by the hall, an area not normally open to the public or the foot tapping jazz band will be playing around the showground during the morning.
