Around the nursery bungalow there is a varied .5 acre plantswoman's garden featuring rockeries, ponds, rare and unusual woodland and sun-loving perennials, huge hosta collection, gravel garden, sculptures and hornbeam arbour. There are stunning views across the Cheshire Plain.
In spring, snowdrops and celandines form drifts beneath the shrubs in the woodland garden. Erythroniums, Trilliums, Meconopsis and primroses continue the display as the azaleas and Rhododendrons come into flower. Dactylrhizas and Arisaemas are the main attraction throughout June as the hostas, astilbes and Trollius come into leaf and flower.
The rockeries are at their most colourful in June, but the Erodiums give interest throughout the summer. Ligularias and Gunnera create a jungle effect around the pond in July and August.
A short walk away lies an atmospheric and historic walled garden and orchard which once belonged to the now demolished One House mansion which gave its name to the nursery. This walled garden has been undergoing extensive restoration over the past seven years and is now planted with a wide range of traditional fruits and vegetables. A restored Victorian greenhouse & an auricula theatre are new features for 2009. Click on the Walled Garden tab to see more photos of the restoration. Rare-breed pigs graze the orchard and there is a wonderful view towards Wales and Shropshire
