Carol Klein Announced as Ambassador for RHS Garden Bridgewater
The Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) has announced that Carol Klein is to be an Ambassador for the new fifth garden, RHS Garden Bridgewater in Salford, Greater Manchester. In this new role, the renowned gardener will champion RHS Garden Bridgewater as it evolves and eventually opens to the public in 2019.  
Speaking yesterday at the site in Worsley, Salford, Klein said: “When I heard about the future RHS Garden Bridgewater I couldn’t believe it: my grandfather's first job was as a garden boy at the garden - it felt like real serendipity. I am thrilled to be an RHS ambassador for this unique place, and I cannot wait to see how it develops.”

Klein, a much-loved presenter of BBC Gardeners’ World
and gardening writer, joins Floella Benjamin, Alan Titchmarsh, Mary Berry, Nick Knowles, Chris Beardshaw, Jekka McVicar, Adam Frost, George Hassall and Jamie Butterworth as RHS Ambassadors.

Klein continued: “I hope everyone loves this garden as much as I know I will and I look forward to the people of Manchester and Salford having somewhere close at hand to celebrate gardening.”

The 154-acre RHS Garden Bridgewater is planned to open in 2019 as part of the RHS wider 10-year £160 million investment programme to achieve its Vision to enrich everyone’s life through plants, and make the UK a greener and more beautiful place.
World-class landscape architect Tom Stuart-Smith, who was appointed to create the garden masterplan in November, has already shared his initial proposals for the 154-acre garden, which include:

o    An arrival experience planted as a perennial meadow with a network of web-like paths guiding visitors to the historic walled garden.

o    The magnificent ten-acre walled garden, one of Worsley’s most impressive original features.

o    A new lake, linking the visitor building to the heart of the historic landscape of the garden which is formed by the Nesfield terraces and the original lake.

o    A large open café terrace to the east which will allow visitors to enjoy refreshments while looking over the water and into the heart of the garden.

All plans at this stage are subject to lease and planning permission. The RHS is working with the owners of the historic estate, Peel Land and Property, and Salford City Council to bring the historic garden to fruition.
