HERE is the final gallery of entries in The Chronicle’s search for the best gardens in the Chester area to celebrate Cheshire’s 2008 Year of Gardens.
Readers still have time to vote to narrow the entries in both small and large garden categories down to three in each category. Judges will then visit the six finalists.
First prize will be £150 of Gordale garden centre vouchers, £100 for second and £50 for third in each category.
Gordale is a large independent garden centre based in Burton, South Wirral, about seven miles from Chester. It is now into its 60th year and remains a family run centre with Peter Nicholson, son of founders Harold and Joyce Nicholson, and his wife Jill at the helm.
With their team of helpful and friendly staff they have built a reputation to be envied and Gordale is widely known for quality and service. Set in a 22 acre site with landscaped gardens and lake, Gordale has a children’s play area, full disabled access, and resident peacock and guinea fowl, making Gordale the ideal destination for a family day out.
