At a recent meeting, the committee discussed the National Garden Scheme.
Here are some Stockport gardens that look like they are worth a visit:
39 Osborne Street
This dahliaholic’s garden contains over 350 dahlias in 150+ varieties, mostly of exhibition standard. Shapely lawns are surrounded by deep flower beds that are crammed with dahlias of all shapes, sizes and colours, and complemented by climbers, soft perennials and bedding plants. An absolute riot of early autumn colour.
21 Scafell Close
⅓ acre landscaped suburban garden. Colour themed annuals border the lawn featuring the Kinder Ram statue in a heather garden, passing into vegetables, soft fruits and fruit trees. Returning perennial pathway leads to the fishpond and secret terraced garden with modern water feature and patio planting. Finally visit the blue front garden.
218 Marple Road
This secret south facing garden approx 1 acre, full of herbaceous plants, vegetable plot, plant growing area, topiary, unfenced ponds/water features, fun areas, developed from paddock to garden over 20yrs by current owners. We are trying to encourage children of all ages in this fun garden. There will be a quiz.
