Spring highlights

See the garden come to life with an array of colours this season. You know spring has truly arrived when the sunny shades of daffodils welcome you to the garden. See rows of vibrant tulips as they create a colourful walkway along the canal- from bright orange to deep purple. Return to see the bluebells carpet the ground with bright blue hues. Pick up the Spring 2019 Gardener's Notebook, Spring Bulb Edition or join one of our tours and see the garden in a whole new light. Guided tours, weekdays at 11:15 and 2:15.

Dunham Massey, Music in the Garden

Music in the Garden 

Relax with live music in the garden as tulips and bluebells spring to life on weekends during May and June, 12 noon–2.45pm. Dig out your picnic blanket, top up your glass and let the music carry you away!

" Spring offers the chance to see the garden come to life with an array of vibrant colours. Enjoy the abundance of pure white snowdrops followed by the sunny shades of daffodils and discover Bluebell Mound as the ground beneath the beech trees is carpeted with a sea of stunning blue hues."
- Emily Chandler
Visitors getting hands-on in a Kitchen Garden

Coming up in 2019...

A brand new Kitchen Garden will be set up in the Rose Garden that will allow us to grow fruit and veg all year round. The gardeners are also working hard to redevelop The Mount to create a peaceful viewing area overlooking the moat. The removal of robinia trees and filling of holes means that this area is subject to closure on some days. Return throughout the year to see how these projects are progressing.

Here comes the sun...

Return to the garden this summer to relax amongst lush greenery and bright colours and enjoy the scents of the Rose Garden in the sunshine. Summer highlights in the garden include the striking white heads of the Cardiocrinum. Stunning summer colour can be seen first in the Rose Garden and when the hydrangeas and acer come into bloom.
