Wander outside the garden into parks and woodland to enjoy Britain’s native bluebells this spring. Almost half the global population of these lovely wild flowers can be found on our shores, so there are plenty of places to soak up their beauty and scent. What’s more, their presence often indicates you’re walking through ancient woodland.

Note:Plants are affected by the weather and despite our gardeners’ best efforts, sometimes they don’t always bloom when we expect. If you’re making a special journey call beforehand and our staff will be delighted to provide an update on what you can see.
