5 Great Gardens For Spring Bulbs

0 Written by Lisa on 22nd Feb 2011 in Inspiration

We’re almost in March now so springtime is most definitely just around the corner.  I have been thinking about some of the best gardens to visit in the South East to see the spring bulbs, so here are a few to get you started…

1.  RHS Garden Wisley, Surrey – The bulbs at Wisley have already started to emerge and only last week they were a picture of gorgeousness.  The snowdrops and cyclamen are soon to be joined by crocus and the early narcissus are also glowing like some much needed sunshine.

2.  Hever Castle, Kent – The snow drops are the main star of the show at Hever Castle in spring where the snow drop trail is open from now until 27th February – perhaps a good place to take the kids during half-term week!?

3.  Sissinghurst Castle & Garden, Kent – I always seem to visit Sissinghurst in the spring, so I am determined to make a visit during the summer months this year!  In March, the garden is a picture of loveliness with all the spring bulbs.

4.  Winkworth Arboretum, Surrey – Winkworth is gorgeous whatever time of year you choose to visit, but the best time is in late April/early May when the woodland floor is a sea of bluebells.  The Magnolias and Azaleas look spectacular too!

5.  Kew Gardens – The amazing display of spring bulbs starts in March and lasts throughout the spring.  You’ll see snowdrops, crocus, daffodils, snake’s head fritillary, scilla, tulips, to name but a few, along with a fantastic display of cherry tree blossom.

It’s also worth looking at the National Garden Scheme website to see whether there are any private gardens open near you.
