Evening Visit to Bluebell Cottage Garden, Dutton


Date: Tuesday 16th May 2017


We had a lovely evening at Bluebell Cottage Gardens. We had a talk and tour by Sue Beesley then we had tea and cake in the sunshine and browsed her extensive nursery, many of us came away with a number of plants. 


Tucked away down a quiet country lane, this rural gem is one of Cheshire’s best kept secrets.
