We are really thrilled to be able to return to Cholmondeley Castle in tranquil rural Cheshire for what deserves to be a firm date in all plant lovers' diaries. Plus we are holding our very successful summer plant fair here again.

The romantic castle - a product of the early 19th century - stands on a high rise above a lake. The castle is surrounded by sweeping lawns and a variety of mature trees, including cedars of Lebanon, oak, and chestnut.

The gardens surrounding the castle provide a lovely mix of colour and height, with intriguing walks around the lake. There is a temple water garden, rose garden, a variety of mixed borders. Plantings are planned to provide colour at all times of the year.

In late June visitors will be wowed by the newly replanted rose garden with over 350 roses and the new to 100 metre-long double herbaceous border.

There is a children's play area and picnic site.
