Find out how the development of our fifth garden progressed during the winter months
A lovely moment as the Garden Team and Wellbeing Volunteers joined forces to plant the first apple and plum trees in the Wellbeing Garden. The initials of the varieties spelt out the word HEALTH (‘Howgate Wonder’, ‘Ellison’s Orange’, ‘Arthur Turner’, ‘Lord Lambourne’, ‘Topaz’ and ‘Herman’).
These apple and pear trees waited patiently for us to prepare their new home – grown as ‘stepovers’ edging the borders in the new Kitchen Garden. Although young trees, they’re descendants of some of the fruit trees that were discovered overgrown in the Weston Walled Garden.
Our volunteers are the heart and soul of Bridgewater. They’ve given so much time and energy, whatever the weather, whatever the job! We’d like to thank each and every one of them for all their support.
The team led workshops across Greater Manchester to engage community groups with nature based solutions. In one workshop they found out how green infrastructure can help us adapt to the effects of a changing climate.
A delicious frosty morning in the Paradise Garden, where apple ‘Lancashire Pippin’, ‘Arbutus Marina’, Buddleja ‘Morning Mist’ and Magnolia ‘Grand Bracken Brown Beauty’ glowed in the low winter sun.
The team at RHS Garden Bridgewater are delighted to be supporting the 2020 Manchester Flower Show, part of the King Street Festival. The show is a fantastic way to connect with nature and explore sustainable living, all in the heart of the city.
Teamwork makes the dream work! RHS Bridgewater’s Outer Walled Garden Team Leader, Caroline Williams and her team planted the last of the beech hedging before spring. It added a lovely splash of colour to the space and created a great habitat for birds.
Harris Bugg Studios visited Sylvia Travers, the Inner Walled Garden Team Leader and planted specimen trees in the Kitchen Garden.
