Ness Botanical Gardens


Set on the Wirral Peninsula, Ness offers the enthusiast many horticultural delights including a replica of an imaginative show garden designed by Chris Beardshaw which won prestigious awards at Tatton; extensive, beautiful herbaceous borders always with something to offer the eye; a Victorian style Potager with many fruit trees and vegetables and Alpine House; a waterfall and water gardens; the largest UK collection of sorbus and most of the 49 known species of birch; plus seasonal surprises such as a splendid laburnum arch, and magnificent collections of magnolias, camellias, and rhododendrons. Our Visitor Centre provides a warm welcome to the Gardens incorporating the multi award winning Roses Tea Rooms, gift shop and plant sales. An extensive events programme runs throughout the year including guided walks, courses and children's activities. Wheelchairs and motorised buggies can be booked in advance (at no charge).


Cheshire has a vast number of gardens of distinction, and one of those gardens that is right at the top of that list is Ness Botanic Gardens. Being right on the periphery of both Cheshire and the Wirral Peninsular, Ness really is the Jewel in the Wirral's crown. I have to be honest that from a personal aspect, gardens are not really my thing, but this book is not about what I like but more about what you'll like. That just goes to show how special Ness really is, as I walked around the gardens here, they have a great way of making you want to know more about each flower and plant alike. Being part of the University of Liverpool, Ness plays a greater roll than most gardens when it comes to the conservation and collection of some of the greatest and rarest plants on this earth.
