Tell us what you think about our garden

**** This survey has now closed****

We are looking at ideas to develop and improve the garden at Elizabeth Gaskell’s House and would like to get input from our visitors.

Today, the garden has been planted to show the sort of garden that the Gaskells enjoyed. The choice of plants has been informed by references in Elizabeth’s letters and novels, as well as by Victorian garden history.  The garden is intended to give as much enjoyment today as it did in Elizabeth’s time. Volunteer gardeners have created what you see today using  period plants where possible, with particular reference to Elizabeth Gaskell’s writings. We are always looking for ways to improve the garden and for new ways to encourage our visitors to experience it.

If you can spare a few minutes to fill out the very short online survey below that would be appreciated. Thank you
