Award winners!


Wollerton Old Hall Garden has been announced as a regional winner in a competition to find the nation’s favourite garden run by the English Garden Magazine and supported by Viking Cruises. We were one of 30 shortlisted gardens, all of which open for the National Garden Scheme (NGS). Wollerton Old Hall has been opening for the National Garden Scheme for 30 years and in that time has raised thousands of pounds for the charity.

At the awards ceremony at London’s Garden Museum on Monday 4th November, the garden topped its regional category of Wales and The Marches. Head Gardener Phil Smith and Garden Secretary Lucie Jenkins represented the garden and received a commemorative Haddonstone plaque which will be displayed at the garden.


The National winner of the competition was Coton Manor in Northamptonshire. You can find out which gardens were the regional winners of 2019’s Nation’s Favourite Gardens competition by visiting the English Garden website.
