Saw Mill Garden

Old Sawmill Logo

Available during the Spring, Summer and Autumn months, it is a little oasis to escape the hustle and bustle of daily life.

We are thrilled that The Old Saw Mill has been awarded ‘Level 5 Outstanding’ in the It’s Your Neighbourhood category of RHS North West in Bloom in 2022. This is the highest award achievable!

Many happy hours were spent by our volunteer gardeners, Diana and Helen, to bring the garden back into order following Lockdown and to prepare it for judging day. Many other volunteers gave their time when called on for specific jobs, plants were donated and extra watering duties were taken on to keep it all alive during the heatwave.

The judging also took into consideration all other aspects of the Saw Mill community, its people and its projects thank you to all who contribute to this special place and helped us to achieve such a high standard.

A little hidden gem to enjoy in Congleton

The Garden area is a perfect place to relax, catch up with friends, meet new people and enjoy our freshly home-cooked food and baked treats washed down with a glass of freshly bottled apple juice or cider.

Meet Scarlett Pearmain

Maintained by the Congleton In Bloom team, this great little sun trap hosts a 2011 Bearmania Congleton Bear named Scarlett Pearmain and proudly sits centre stage on the decking area to welcome all guests and visitors and watches the garden blossom during the Spring and Summer months.

The garden is a very peaceful space. Thank you for all the beautiful words written in our Garden Comments book from appreciative customers, volunteers and staff.

If you haven’t stepped into this space recently, please make sure to take a peek on your next visit. Once the warm weather returns in the Spring it will be open for customers to sit and relax and enjoy our secret corner of nature.
