The Garden at Osterley in Spring

Winter Garden 2020

Osterley Park's formal gardens were transformed during a six year long project from an overgrown wilderness back to their 18th century grandeur of herbaceous borders, roses and ornamental vegetables beds.

Osterley's formal gardens start to come alive in the Spring, with pockets of colour popping up under trees and scattered across the lawns. Across the gardens, daffodils and crocuses take centre stage as swathes of yellow and purple burst onto the scene.

Head to the Cutting Gardens to enjoy the sight of the candy-coloured Florist’s anemones, looking dazzling next to the fruiting trees breaking into bloom. And in the Winter Garden, Spring is the perfect time to see the beautiful cherry blossom, providing a colourful contrast to the frosty scenes only a few months ago.

Soon the roses will start to bloom and the gardeners will begin planting out the Ornamental Vegetable Garden, having worked with the Stables Café team to work out which produce can be used on our summer menu. And if you're feeling peckish after all that, don’t forget to pop into the Stables Café afterwards and try something new from the tempting Spring menu.
