Plants galore at Biddulph Grange Garden

An impressive collection of plants and trees from all over the world

James Bateman created the stunning and magical garden we know today. He lived at a time when plant hunters were risking life and limb to scour the world and bring back plants and trees never seen before in Britain. Biddulph became a horticultural wonder of the age and it remains one of Britain’s most important historic gardens.

So impressive is the garden that it is Grade 1 listed, a grading given only to sites of the highest significance.
