Spring Garden Highlights

The Water Garden

In the oriental Water Garden, breath in the sweet scented fragrance of spring flowers currently in full bloom. Look out for Helleboress, Irises, flowering cherries and magnolias. 

The Long Garden

In the Long Garden, there's over 11,000 citrus coloured polyanthus currently filling the four central beds in a beautiful spring display. 


A quarter of the Trust's woodland, such as Cliveden's, is semi-natural and ancient: this is the ideal habitat for bluebells to grow. Our ranger team has reported seeing bluebells in huge displays across Cliveden's wider estate. Please remember to stick to hard paths and walkways as the habitat in which bluebells grow are extremely fragile.
