Bridgemere Show Gardens, now owned by the Blue Diamond Group, are once again restored to their former glory following an extensive restoration and rejuvenation and are to be re-launched on the May 20 at 1pm.
These Gardens include 3 RHS Chelsea Medal winning show gardens.
Formally known as ‘The Garden Kingdom’, and founded by John Ravenscroft in the 1980s to inspire amateur gardeners, these Show Gardens were once a popular visitor destination, attracting people from all over the UK and overseas. It is one of the only places in the UK where you can see a collection of RHS award-winning gardens from past, to the present day.
The Blue Diamond Group have resurrected the Gardens to their former glory. Sadly, the Gardens fell into disrepair when John retired in 2006 and it was only when the Blue Diamond Group bought Bridgemere Garden Centre, the Gardens and the adjoining nursery in October 2019, that work has been undertaken in the Gardens to resurrect and restore them to their former glory.
Bridgemere Show Gardens is located within Bridgemere Garden Centre, Nantwich, Cheshire.
It is a 6-acre garden and in total, home to 13 individual gardens, including seven RHS gold and silver medal award- winning show garden which are recreations from RHS Chelsea, RHS Hampton Court and RHS Tatton Flower Shows. Many of the plants in the Show Gardens are grown in our nursery and are available to buy from our Garden Centre.
The Bridgemere Show Gardens also include other medal winning show garden recreations from the Garden Festivals in Hanley and Liverpool as well as the garden in which the 1993 television series 'Gardener's Diary' was filmed. (Between 1993 and 1997, the TV series, ‘A Gardener’s Diary,’ was filmed from these Gardens and aired on Grampian, Border, West Country, Carlton and RTE Dublin TV).
