What's in Bloom?
The 50 acres of Gardens at Tatton Park have evolved for over 200 years. Today it is an almost complete picture of how the gardens existed in Edwardian times. Find out more about the different areas of Tatton Park's gardens from the Walled Kitchen Garden, Japanese Garden, Glasshouses and the Pleasure Grounds, including an Arboretum featuring almost 900 plant varieties.
- An impressive display of Giant Rhubarb (Gunnera Manicata)
- Colourful shades of Hydrangea
- Maples starting to show colour in the Japanese Garden and surrounding areas
- Apple crops developing well for cropping from September onwards
- Look out for annual summer planting across the Italian Garden, Charlotte's Garden and Rockery
Tatton Park’s Orchid House is blooming with colour at the moment. Whilst the Gardens are now open to the public, certain areas, such as the Glasshouses and Fernery remain closed where social distancing is not possible. However, we're trying to help you stay connected to these areas in different ways. Read more about Tatton's Glasshouses and orchid collection.
What's growing in the Kitchen Garden?
Potatoes and salad have recently been harvested and are being used on the menu at our Stables Restaurant. (Look out for our roasted Potato Wedges!) In the Walled Kitchen Garden see if you can spot figs, salad leaves and rhubarb.
Produce from the Kitchen Gardens is for sale in the Housekeeper's Store (while supplies last). Look out for the Pink Fir Apple potato for sale - one the best for salad potatoes!
Video footage to bring you closer to the Gardens
Here are a few one-minute-long ambient videos, filmed in the Gardens recently. If you are unable to visit Tatton Park at the moment we hope you can enjoy the sights and sounds of nature, captured in these short films and we look forward to welcoming you again soon.
