Our gardeners and garden volunteers have been hard at work and with a little help from Mother Nature our gardens will be bursting with blooms this spring. Celebrate the arrival of the new season with us at one of our garden events.

Soak up the scents, colours, shapes and textures as our gardeners take you on a guided tour through the season’s highlights. Admire displays of daffodils, snowdrops and bluebells and look out for magnificent magnolias and camellias. We’ll also be running special garden tours as part of the National Gardens Scheme.

Get green fingered at practical workshops on vegetable growing, flower arranging, garden pests, spring planting and outdoor photography run by our experts. Budding young gardeners can get stuck in too with seed planting activities – one of our 50 things to do before you’re 11 ¾.

By joining in you’ll not only enjoy a revitalising day out amongst the greenery, you’ll also be helping us to carry on looking after gardens and green spaces for everyone to enjoy. Stop for a cuppa in one of our tea-rooms and every purchase also helps our work caring for special places.
