What an impressive collection of dahlias - I wonder how they keep the slugs off? This is such an interesting blog - what a difference since we visited in the late nineties at the beginning of the restoration - its looking wonderful. That little tunnel in particular was drowning in ivy and looked quite threatening and sort of occult - it looks quite friendly and welcoming now!

The last couple of pics were the kitchen garden. Locals & children have fun. A lot of plants had finished. They are all volunteers there.

The bedding is put in to give some interest.Some plants were good but not together. We were quite selective!! Loading 3 a time is a labour of love!! The Dahlia selection was stunning. We came late in the day & whizzed round.

There is a new entrance now & a selling plants area, Picnic tables are gone.The exhibition area has changed too. Lottery funded room is drab & not to my liking. It was done to interest kids , but they want colour!!

We will be back! It used to take 90 mins but 50 mins is some difference!! Biddulph Moor was stunning...
