32. Bluebell Cottage Gardens
When Sue Beesley won BBC Gardener of the Year in 2006, it gave her the confidence to run her own nursery, says Victoria. "Open from April to September, the gardens, which run alongside the Trent and Mersey canal towpath, boast a potager, a grasses garden and orchard while the nursery is crammed with locally grown plants, many of which have been propagated by Sue herself." Tearoom and parking.
