RH1 - 35 Claremont Avenue, SK6 6JE:  Refreshments may be available

A suburban garden with a tranquil atmosphere despite being close to Stockport Road

35 Claremont Avenue

Our south-facing suburban garden has evolved from a fairly blank canvas during the 41 years that we have lived and gardened here. It has a sunny aspect but there is plenty of shade provided by two mature apple trees, ornamental trees and and mature trees ‘borrowed’ from neighbouring gardens.

The planting is relaxed and informal and includes perennials, both sun and shade lovers, roses, clematis and flowering shrubs as well as collections of potted hostas and agapanthus. Additional colour is provided by hanging baskets and potted tubs.

The garden has a tranquil atmosphere even though we are close to Stockport Road. Come and enjoy tea and cake on our lawn or patio.

RH2 - 15 Stuart Avenue, SK6 6JX:  Partially accessible to wheelchairs

Corner plot packed with small trees, shrubs, bulbs, plants and pots to give year-round interest.

15 Stuart Avenue

The garden is situated in the corner plot of the cul-de-sac. It is southwest facing with an open aspect and yet with a secluded feel.

It is packed with small trees, shrubs and bulbs, with many perennials in the herbaceous border and alpine plants in the rockery. Many more plant have to be in pots because of the owner’s impulsive buying!

There are a few raised beds for growing vegetables and a variety of soft fruits.

The northeast-facing front garden has been paved over and here a collection of hostas are growing in the pots.

The garden has year-round interest and colour.

Parking: Please park on Marple Hall Drive and walk to Stuart Avenue as there is limited access for vehicles and turning in the cul-de-sac.

RH3 - 1 Nab Lane, SK6 6NW:  Partially accessible to wheelchairs  Refreshments may be available

Wildlife and child-friendly garden with lovely views and a woodland dedicated to Pooh Bear.

1 Nab Lane

This large garden extends to half an acre and contains many splendid mature trees as well as having a lovely view down the Etherow Valley.

Sadly, the Spring display of rhododendrons and azaleas will be over, but should be replaced by the hydrangeas.

Friendly to wildlife and to children, a surprise in the far corner is a small secluded wood devoted to Pooh Bear and his friends. This is guarded by a large dog but don’t worry – he’s made of stone!

The front path is edged with acers and clipped box while in the back garden, the large lawns are edged with well-stocked beds and dotted with seats.

Do join us for a rest and a cuppa! We will also be doing Art in the Garden and selling copies of Marple Through the Alphabet with all proceeds to Cancer Research UK.

Parking: Vehicle access on Nab Lane and the Dale Road approach to it is very restricted. It is recommended that you leave your car near to 59 Dale Road, which is the nearest Open Garden to us, and walk the rest of the way. It's quite a pleasant stroll!

RH4 - 59 Dale Road, SK6 6NF:

'Half a garden' featuring two ponds with Koi and goldfish, raised vegetable beds and a rockery.

59 Dale Road

We call it ‘Half a garden’ because when we moved into the house in 1970 there was twice the area of the present garden. However, we sold much of this land to four of our neighbours and squared off our garden to its present size in 2000.

We then added a second, larger pond which contains Koi carp and goldfish that have now grown from three inches to their present size. Four raised beds for vegetables were added, and a large rockery was made with the surplus clay from the pond excavations.

Above the pond, two terraces were developed, the larger lower one bounded by a greenhouse. The beds surrounding the lawn contain a mixture of flowers, shrubs, trees and stonework.

RH5 - 73 Bowden Lane, SK6 6ND:

A 'brand new' remodelled garden on an old site that is evolving into a labour of love.

73 Bowden Lane

Built in 1929, the house had had only two owners before we moved in less than three years ago. At that time, the house was unfinished and the garden a pile of rubble.

The garden had previously been split-level with the lower part regularly flooding, particularly since the school rebuild. So work began by raising the whole garden by ¾ of a metre using some of the building rubble and tons of topsoil to try to prevent future flooding.

This is therefore a ‘new’ garden - officially only one year old - and is quickly settling in. It now has a magnificent deck, a large modern pond, lawn, raised beds, borders and lots of pots. Some of the plants have been saved and transplanted from the ‘old’ garden, some have been with us for years and many are from cuttings.

The garden is without doubt a work in progress and most definitely a labour of love and I am sure it will be evolving and changing constantly over the coming years.

Parking fees are charged on Saturdays but it's free on Sundays.

MC1 - 5 Winnington Road, SK6 6PD:  Partially accessible to wheelchairs  Refreshments may be available

A triangular garden with protected mature trees created by the heart rather than the head.

5 Winnington Road

This 1/3 acre, triangular plot is perimetered by arguably the longest hedge in Marple!

It hosts protected mature trees which stand in what was originally part of the Brabyn’s estate.

At the end of the bordered front lawn sits a summerhouse, which hides a secret rock garden.

A rose and honeysuckle-clad arch leads to a lily pond crossed by a bridge inspired by a trip to Monet’s garden.

A path from the bordered rear lawn leads to a secluded patio area where the owners eat al fresco when the weather permits.

This garden has evolved over the last forty years rather than being a product of a grand master plan. It has been gardened by the heart rather than the head.

MC2 - 22 St. Martin's Road, SK6 7BY:  Partially accessible to wheelchairs  Refreshments may be available

A garden that's been called 'Quirky' painted with plants to achieve all-year-round colour.

22 St. Martin's Road

When we built our bungalow 44 years ago, little did we envisage the evolution of our garden from a neglected orchard, to clay heaps from the footings and eventually to the tranquil, well-loved haven of today.

All year colour and interest is my aim, from the balcony boxes and rockery, to informal beds and lawns and a little home-made topiary.

Painting with plants is my way of explaining our constantly evolving garden, as the mood takes me and our energy lasts.

‘Quirky’ is a word recently used for our efforts – maybe you will agree.

A warm welcome is extended to join us on the patio.

Marple Memorial Park, SK6 6BB:  Partially accessible to wheelchairs

Marple's glorious town centre park with flowerbeds maintained by local volunteers.

Marple Memorial Park

The land for Marple Memorial Park was given in Memory of the men of Marple who fell in the Great War 1914 - 1918 and the laying-out was done by Public Subscription. The park was formally opened on 22 July 1922 with a Dedication Ceremony and Historical Pageant attended by thousands.

Friends of Marple Memorial Park began helping to look after the park in 2003. In 2011 the group learned that the council were planning to grass-over the flowerbeds to save money and stepped-up to save them. Their volunteers now maintain all the fabulous flowerbeds, shrub beds, borders and benches in the park on their own.

The group has also led many successful projects to improve the park's facilities and will be delighted to chat to Open Garden visitors about their activities.

On Saturday and Sunday there will be a stall in the park for ticket sales and information. There are also public toilets in the park.

MC3 - 92 Stockport Road, SK6 6AH:

Small walled town centre garden jam-packed with fabulous trees, plants and bamboos.

92 Stockport Road

In the dappled shade of a mature walnut tree you'll be greeted by a small walled garden containing a fabulous collection of Japanese acers, hostas, heucheras, iris, cannas and a tree fern.

Climbing the surrounding walls you'll view combinations of clematis and climbing roses. 

Follow the garden path and you'll soon discover the cottage garden flowers in bloom, all with a backdrop of golden bamboo. 

Heading towards the bottom of the garden, make sure you don’t miss the jasmine, clematis and wisteria climbing the fence.

Finally, at the end of the garden there are more decorative acers with bamboo and a collection of Mediterranean standard plants.

MC4 - 35 Hollins Green Road, SK6 6AN:

Small hidden potager garden growing vegetables and fruit fit to feed a family.

35 Hollins Green Road

To the front, this garden looks just like your everyday suburban lawn and borders, but if you stroll down the passageway and enter through the side gate to the rear of the property, you will discover a small hidden potager.

What was once lawn has now given way to over a dozen varied vegetable beds.

Along the borders, soft fruit, clematis and roses grow, while the wooden planters include onions and potatoes, cauliflower and sweet corn and many other vegetables, fit to feed a family!

Across the patio a small cherry tree sits centrally in a small lawn, with a border of acers, salix, buddleia and camellia.

MC5 - 59 Hollins Lane, SK6 6AW:  Refreshments may be available

A 'cottage garden' that's been constantly evolving and changing since 1980.

59 Hollins Lane

We moved here in 1980. The first job in this small suburban garden was to move stones and lovely topsoil from a large rockery at the side of the house to create a driveway. Ever since I have been moving that soil and those stones from one place to another as the garden developed.  

Winter 2017/18 saw major upheaval as part of the boundary wall was rebuilt, borders were cleared and the lawn became a repository for stone from the wall. After months of rain and bitter cold, would I ever get that border replanted?

Visit and see where the soil is now - is there a lawn, are there any plants? There may even be some for sale!

Garden Style? Probably cottage garden as I attempt to hide every inch of that soil from sight!  

Teas next door.

MC6 - 5 Manor Hill Road, SK6 6LP:  Partially accessible to wheelchairs

A garden sometimes described as 'chaotic', where nature is often allowed to take over.

5 Manor Hill Road

Visitors comment on the varied displays in our garden and its somewhat ‘chaotic’ appearance!

It does not start out that way as beds and displays are planned but nature takes over with self-seeding plants, others need splitting, we rescue plants, receive gifts and Gardeners’ World comes up with suggestions.

The garden occupies a large corner plot that wraps all round the house, and the many island beds and large range of planting add to its cottage-garden feel.

We hope there will be something for everyone and that visitors will leave with smiling faces!

AZ1 - 6 Stiles Avenue, SK6 6LR: Partially accessible to wheelchairs

Creatively shaped island beds are at the core of this large beautifully landscaped garden.

6 Stiles Avenue

This large, beautifully-landscaped garden slopes down from an extensive area of decking to a quiet dell with a small pond.

The impressive expanse of lawn is bordered by bold and varied herbaceous borders which include many unusual varieties of perennials and a collection of ‘giant’ species.

However, it is the central steps and the creatively-shaped island beds which form the core of the garden’s character.

The stylish raised beds in the front garden are densely planted and a delight to any visiting plant-lover.

Many specimen trees and shrubs also feature towards the bottom of the garden, as do the chickens!

AZ2 - 9 Ashwood Crescent, SK6 6LS:  Partially accessible to wheelchairs

 

 

A diversity of roses, shrubs, trees, perennials alpines and vegetables in a south-facing garden.

9 Ashwood Crescent

Our large south-facing garden slopes down to mature woodland.

Borders contain an eclectic mix of Spring and summer perennials, shrubs, trees and roses from sources as diverse as Kew and Aldi!

We love alpines which are to be found in a gravel garden and various containers.

Salvias and aeoniums are also of particular interest, although the Beast from the East proved a challenge for some.

A couple of raised beds contain vegetables and cut flowers – a replacement for a former allotment.

The greenhouse is full of tender plants in winter and kitchen produce in summer.

AZ3 - 1 Limefield Close, SK6 6LD:  Partially accessible to wheelchairs

A garden with no lawn and no straight lines transformed from a boring grassy mound!

1 Limefield Close

When we moved into our house six years ago, our garden was just a boring, awkwardly-shaped grassy mound.

The only brief we gave our designer was to have space for a summer house and a bird-feeding station, with no grass and no straight lines – and all this we now have!

The planting is set among raised beds and rockery and includes a herbaceous border, espalier apple and pear trees, soft fruit bushes, shrubs and much more besides – do come and see!

AZ4 - 2 Limefield Close, SK6 6LD:  Partially accessible to wheelchairs

A lush green tropical surprise featuring summer jewels tucked away at the top of a quiet close.

2 Limefield Close

Tucked away at the top of a quiet close, the lawn of the front garden is edged by a slowly expanding (work in progress) herbaceous border, planted mainly with varieties of geranium, clematis,shrubs and box balls.

However, a surprise awaits behind the house for the rear garden has a lush, green, tropical vibe!

It is a small, enclosed, paved and steeply-tiered garden with plants including fatsia, trachycarpus, palm, bamboo, phormium and euphorbia.

In summer the addition of jewel-coloured annuals provides splashes of colour.

AZ5 - 35 Ashwood Crescent, SK6 6LS:  Partially accessible to wheelchairs

Planted with wildlife in mind, this large sloping garden is a mix of rising paths and formal steps.

35 Ashwood Crescent

Re-landscaped in 2015, this large sloping, south-facing garden is still very much ‘under development’.

It has been designed and planted with wildlife in mind, having a wildflower orchard and large pond with British native aquatic plants.

The garden is terraced with a mix of gently rising paths and more formal steps.

A wide variety of plants can be found in the ornamental flower beds, in the knot garden and on the large patio. There is also a greenhouse with working area.

At the front, a mix of trees, shrubs and perennials surround a pebbled area.

Plants for sale to raise funds for Cancer Research UK at this garden.

AZ6 - Seven Stiles Allotments, SK6 6PJ:  Partially accessible to wheelchairs  Refreshments may be available

A fertile oasis of calm that has been in continuous use by local plot-holders for over forty years

Seven Stiles Allotments

The site is in the Ley Hey area of Marple and is bounded by the seven Stiles footpath connecting Bowden Lane with Oakdene Road. This has been in continuous use for over forty years, is owned by Stockport MBC and is classed as Statutary Land for allotment use.

It comprises an area of 1.25 acres (0.5 hectares) and is the home for nearly 40 plot holders and includes raised beds for the less-able.

This oasis of calm has been improved over the years, is very fertile and grows a huge variety of vegetable, fruit and flowers.

Regular working parties have improved drainage and paths and have constructed rest areas, a ‘Chinese Bridge’ and a summerhouse.

Entrances to the allotments are accessible from Manor Hill Road / Ashwood Crescent to the west and from Oakdene Road to the east.

AZ7 - 10 Green Meadows Drive, SK6 6QE (open Saturday 7th July only):

A diverse sloping garden with a woodland backdrop that a variety of birds love to visit.

10 Green Meadow Drive

This sloping garden, which has a wonderful woodland backdrop, has different areas of interest.

The front garden has a mixed shrub and flower border along with smaller beds nearer the house.

At the back, an irregular-shaped pond is situated in a herbaceous bed. The shady border facing it contains hostas, geraniums, ferns and shrubs with interesting textures and foliage. Grasses grow in a sinuous gravel garden.

Curves, rather than straight lines, predominate in this quarter of an acre plot. A variety of birds regularly visit.  And the double swing provides relaxation after a day’s gardening.

A challenge called "Find the Buddha" in this garden will be a diversion for young children!

Corrections to printed leaflet

There are two error in the printed tri-fold leaflet distributed with tickets, both concerning the Allotments Zone. One is the reversal of information on the green inner fold: AZ2 should say "Large; south-facing; includes a bit of everything" and AZ5 should read "Large; developing; includes a bit of everything". Also to garden AZ7 which is referred to beside the address of 10 Green Meadows Drive on the map as AZ6 instead of AZ7. Apologies to the garden owners concerned.

MR1 - 62 Ridge Crescent, SK6 7JA:  Partially accessible to wheelchairs  Refreshments may be available

A well-stocked garden overlooking Hawk Green with great variety packed into a small space.

62 Ridge Crescent

When we first moved here in the early 1970s the garden was totally open, sloping down to the Green. We terraced the sloping area and planted a hedge on the boundary.

The plot has gone from full sun, to a period of being overshadowed by trees which have fortunately now been removed, following one of them falling onto the garden in a high wind!

The garden is sheltered by hedges from the somewhat exposed position here in Hawk Green allowing us to grow a wide range of plants, including a small raised vegetable patch. It is an example of how much variety can be packed in to a small space.

The front garden gets full sun and features a rockery and pots.

MR2 - 18 Brookdale Avenue, SK6 7HP (Open Sunday 8th July only):

A plantaholic's garden stuffed with long-lasting colour and year-round interest.

18 Brookdale Avenue

A small front and back plantaholic’s garden at a semi-detached home.

Its mixed shrub and perennial borders are stuffed with many varieties of perennials to provide long-lasting colour, mixed with mainly evergreen shrubs to provide year-round interest.

The soil is heavy clay. There is a small pond, small lawns, and obelisks and trellis for climbers.

Two patio areas have pots of acers, shrubs, hostas, annuals and fruit.

Many new shrubs have been planted since moving here six years ago, along with 200 plants brought from the previous garden.

The front garden is very exposed to ‘Beasts from the East’ and many plants here are recovering slowly but surely.

Plant sale. Toilet available.

MR3 - 11 Ridge Avenue, SK6 7HJ:  Refreshments may be available

Large garden with abundant trees, shrubs, hostas and stunning views of the Mellor hills.

11 Ridge Avenue

Mature trees and shrubs are in abundance, together with a large variety of hostas.

The greenhouse is currently occupied by tomatoes and runner beans while the dovecote is awaiting new residents.

A naturally-seeded damp area is home to iris and wild geraniums.

Paths lead down enticingly from the creatively-terraced upper garden to an open, grassy seating area where you can sit and take in the stunning views.

MR4 - 133 Church Lane, SK6 7LD:  Partially accessible to wheelchairs

A garden crammed with perennials and well stocked borders with views towards Kinder Scout.

133 Church Lane

This medium-sized rectangular plot has a lovely open aspect with views towards Kinder Scout.

There are several small trees and shrubs and many places for vegetables and soft fruit.

However the main planting is dominated by a large variety of perennials which cram the borders in both the front and back gardens.

The central lawn is edged with these well-stocked borders and enhanced by a curving pathway and raised corner bed.

Two separate sitting areas make use of the sun. A greenhouse and minute pond also feature – and some much-loved garden ornaments!
