Places to see blossom in the South West

Cherry, apple and plum blossom are starting to spring up in the South West. As well as providing us with beautiful spaces to relax and delicious food and drink to enjoy, traditional orchards and gardens with flowering fruit trees are home to many birds, bees, butterflies and insects.

As blossom starts to reappear to brighten up our spring, we are reminded that in an ever-changing world, nature will always be a source of comfort for many of us. Discover more about these beautiful blooms that you've noticed during #BlossomWatch and the benefits they bring. In the coming weeks we’ll be sharing where you can see dazzling blossom displays near you, and how we're involving the community in the joys of the season.

Take time to admire spring blossom, whether this be from your window, down the street on your daily exercise or in your garden if you’re lucky enough to have it grow there. You can also learn more about how these floral wonders support wildlife.

Visiting this spring 

Our gardens, parks and countryside locations are open. Cafés are offering a takeaway service and some outdoor seating is available at cafés in England only. Some shops are open in England and Wales but remain closed in Northern Ireland. All houses are currently closed. The safety of our staff, volunteers and visitors remains our priority. To avoid disappointment please book in advance, especially at busier times such as weekends and bank holidays. Please check the property webpage before you visit and follow government guidance.
