A garden coming to life this spring with pear blossom, daffodils, primroses, wisteria, mimosa, rhododendrons & more.

The Repton designed landscape at Antony is adorned with daffodils come spring. Sweeping views look out to the river Lynher and a formal garden full of surprises plays host to a multitude of blooms.

Daffodils

These bright yellow flowers burst onto the scene during early spring, offering a welcome blast of colour after the grey winter months. The Repton views are at their most dazzling when the daffodils are in flower.

Magnolias

There are magnolias heavy laden with blooms located at various points around the garden. You can see them by the Japanese pond & the Mandalay bell is framed by magnolia trees of different sizes.

Pear blossom

Fan trained pears grow along the outside of the walled garden, which is actually the old kitchen garden wall. They are in full bloom at this time of year.

Primroses

These small plants with delicate yellow flowers are dotted throughout the garden and make a welcome return each spring. They are sure to brighten up a spring walk. You can find them clustered around the base of trees.
