PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! Although we have some amazing parks and gardens here in Manchester, sometimes it’s nice to pack up a picnic and travel a bit further afield for a change of scenery. A visit to a garden can be a welcome escape from daily life, while it can also capture children’s imaginations and transport you to different places. Just over an hour’s drive from Manchester is Ness Botanic Gardens, where you’ll find a vast range of flowers, plants and shrubs spread over 64 acres. From water gardens to a wildflower meadow, there’s plenty to see and you can easily lose yourself here for an hour or two. The gardens were first created in 1898 by Arthur Bulley, a wealthy cotton trader. His daughter gave the gardens to the University of Liverpool in 1948, several years after his death.

There’s a rock garden displaying alpine shrubs, while a kitchen garden serves as inspiration for what you can grow in your own backyard. There's plenty of beautiful displays to see at the gardens (Image: Esther Westerveld /flickr.com) Among the flowers you can see are Rhododendrons, Azaleas and an impressive Laburnum arch. The gardens are also a haven for wildlife, so keep your eyes peeled for birds and insects. There’s a play area for children, as well as an orchard which is home to some hens.
