It’s one of the biggest gardening projects in Europe – the new Royal Horticultural Society garden at Bridgewater. And you can be one of the first to visit when it opens in May during this exclusive four-day tour.
The opening has been delayed by the pandemic – but that has allowed Bridgewater’s dedicated team of gardeners to make it even more spectacular. A core, socially-distanced group has spent the lockdown planting thousands of specimens, meaning that 40,000 more plants than originally planned will be ready for the revised opening date.
Bridgewater, in Salford near Manchester, will be the fifth RHS garden, and to make this trip even more unforgettable you’ll be joined by the man behind the vision for the project, landscape architect Tom Stuart-Smith, who will take you on an exclusive tour. This will be followed by afternoon tea, a talk from Tom and a question-and-answer session.
