RHS Garden Bridgewater, Salford, Greater Manchester is now open.

Many will be thinking you’ve never ‘worked’ a day in your life as you love your job so much it is a pleasure rather than a task. Days don’t get much better than the one I enjoyed this week…. The morning was spent walking the Ball Colegrave trial grounds followed by an evening at RHS Garden Bridgewater. Two great demonstrations of investment and belief in the future of our industry. Time at Ball Colegrave is always a pleasure as they never fail to have wonderful plants on show. Despite numerous visits there over the years I always learn something, and this year was no different. If you missed the 2021 open weeks do make sure you get there in 2022. Whether you are a landscaper, grower or retailer there is plenty to see and a morning visit really isn’t enough to take it all in. A few hours later, on what was one of the hottest days of the year, I was walking in to the new RHS Garden Bridgewater. WOW! What an investment and fantastic demonstration of how a long-forgotten piece of land can be transformed into something beautiful. An evening there is not long enough to appreciate the gardens and I will certainly be going back soon. The RHS and Ball Colegrave share what they do with as many people as possible, and they are both flourishing. Something to be learnt from this I feel!!
