A Quick Trip to Biddulph Grange

This weekend we decided, at the last minute, to take a trip to Biddulph Grange, a  garden in Stoke-on-Trent owned by the National Trust. The National Trust have recreated the Victorian-era gardens of James Bateman, who developed the gardens at Biddulph Grange in order to display his collections of plants – many of which were brought to England from around the world by the famous plant hunters. The varied contents of the garden are displayed in dedicated sections, which include ‘Egypt’ and ‘China’ gardens. At this time of year the Dahlia Walk was in full bloom and the Stumpery and Pinetum  were particularly lovely.
