Bridgemere Show Gardens can be enjoyed all year round. In spring the gardens are a mass of colour blossoming with crocus, snowdrops, daffodils and tulips, and the borders packed tightly with spectacular colour from the rhododendrons and azaleas. In summer herbaceous perennials such as iris, peonies and delphinium delight and the formal beds are brimming with colour from the dahlias. In the autumn the colours of the maples are simply glorious and in the winter how about a frosty walk to admire the topiary of our Tatton Garden and the scented fragrance of the daphnes and witch hazels.

In spring our displays of tulips are a feast for the eyes.
We plant over 20,000 bulbs. Don’t miss the heritage daffodils and in our woodland over 120 varieties of rhododendrons, azaleas and magnolias. It’s a sheer festival of glorious colour!
A summer visit is a must. Our gardens have the best of everything! From the grace and charm of our Gold Medal, award-winning RHS Chelsea Cottage Garden, to the stunning formal structure of the dahlia beds and this summer a new traditional rose garden. Something for everyone!
In autumn the acers put on a show stopping display with their beautiful foliage, graceful habits and autumn colours. The woodland borders are dotted with colchicums, commonly known as Autumn Crocus, asters bring delightful colour to the Gardens when many other blooms may be fading.
Don’t stay indoors this winter, wrap up warm and come out! On a frosty day enjoy our beautiful Gardens with drifts of snowdrops, some very rare, crocus, hellebores and the intense fragrance of daphnes and viburnums.
