I once stumbled in here on a summers day. I honestly felt like i had walked into a painting, the garden is breathtaking in full bloom in the summer.

Walked down Stenner Lane to the canal, round Millgate Fields, over the slatted walkway on the boggy ground & back up through Stenner Woods and Fletcher Moss Park - café there proving as popular as ever. Plenty of family groups & dog walkers taking advantage of the mild weather on Sunday 30/11/14. Lovely way to start the day & feels... More

We visited here for a casual wander around on recommendation and it's well worth a visit. Even some tree cutting while we were there didn't spoil it's basic peace and calm. If you can't find a parking spot down one of the lanes then there is a big car park costing only £2 next to the Didsbury pub. There is... More

Having been recommended by a friend, I visited here on Bank Holiday Sunday afternoon which turned out to be so much sunnier and warmer than forecast and showed the Parsonage Gardens section to its best advantage. Just happened to have timed my arrival for the performance of a medieval play with strolling players and guitarist, free too. The main Fletcher... More

We took the tram from Central Manchester to East Didsbury, and then after asking directions at the Bell House we walked to the Gardens. It was a short, easy walk with interesting houses to see along the way. We crossed the tables filled with folks enjoying a lazy lunch and entered the gardens, then spending about an hour (could have... More

The Fletcher Moss Botanical garden isn't large, however it is always a pleasure to visit. The change in scenery throughout the seasons is beautiful. I would just note that dogs aren't aloud in the botanical garden section, which is a pits, as I wanted to show my friend the flowers, but couldn't because I had a dog. I often go... More

My wife and I found the online brochure to be deceptive; it gives the impression of being somewhere breathtaking. We anticipated wandering through a vast expanse of various colourful flowers, trees and bushes ....Imagine our disappointment when we found ourselves cautiously pottering around narrow paths in what can, at best, be described as a large back-garden with a small pond...
