A Victorian walled garden retaining many of its period features, including heated flue walls, a mushroom house and elaborately trained fruit trees. The high walls provide a sheltered environment to grow vegetables, soft fruit etc. but also have colourful borders of perennials, an organic plot and greenhouses with Liverpool's historic Botanic Collection.
The garden traditionally supplied produce to Croxteth Hall, just next to the garden. The Hall was the home of the Earls of Sefton from about 1575 until the death of the last earl in 1972. The Hall, Farm and Gardens are part of an historic estate comprising parkland, grazing meadows and woodland extending to over 500 acres.
