VISITORS to Ness Gardens have a rare chance to see a spectacular concept garden under construction over the next three weeks.
To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Friends of Ness Gardens, the group has funded a new garden entitled Making Waves, along with a companion show garden for July’s Tatton Flower Show.
Both have been designed by award-winning Wirral designer Pip Probert.
Making Waves will be completed by Jubilee weekend – but nature lovers are encouraged to grab a one-off opportunity to see the work in progress.
The 23m by 27m creation will feature changes in level, water, local sandstone, lush planting and six dramatic grassy ‘waves’.
Curator Paul Cook said: “Visitors to Ness over the next three weeks will have the chance to witness a dramatic new garden appearing from what last week was just a very muddy piece of land. It is a rare opportunity – and one not to be missed.
“Once it is completed we will be using the Making Waves garden to publicise our exciting longer term plans for the development of the potting sheds here into an exhibition and education area telling the story of Ness.”
