The garden boasts an impressive collection of trees, a formal courtyard garden, a glorious wildflower meadow that is great for pollinating insects and several old marl pits which are home to dragonflies and damselflies.
“This beautiful and extensive wildlife-friendly garden is a real treat for gardeners and is sure to provide inspiration for anyone wanting to make their garden better for wildlife. We love hearing how people have made changes to their own gardens following their visit to Rowley House. We’d like to say a big thank you to Tim and Juliet for once again supporting the Trust,” said Jo Darlington, Director of Fundraising and Communications at Cheshire Wildlife Trust.
Cheshire Wildlife Trust runs a ‘Wildlife Friendly Gardening Award’ scheme, of which Rowley House is a proud recipient. “The scheme is open to everyone. It doesn’t matter how big or small the outdoor space, as long as it is possible to showcase what has been done to help wildlife,” said Jo Darlington. “This might be through creating a mini wildflower meadow, avoiding using harmful chemicals or building insect hotels.”
Entries to the scheme receive a plaque, certificate, and gardening booklet. Further details about the ‘Wildlife Friendly Gardening Award’ and how to enter can be found on their website: www.cheshirewildlifetrust.org.uk/mywildlifegarden.
