Spring time in the garden at Quebec House

Our small but intimate garden is a source of pride to the gardeners who look after it. A lot of colour is packed into the compact borders, creating wonderful sights and delicious smells for our visitors to enjoy.

This spring and early summer there will be plenty of bulbs to see around the garden. The iconic tulip will be in abundance; look out for these in front of the house entrace.

Other colourful blooms popping up are the classic daffodil, seasonal primrose and dainty barrenwort.

The gardeners are kept busy

At this time of year, the gardeners will be working on our spring lawn care, scarifying, feeding and reseeding. Pruning the young rose border, mulching the flower beds ready for June flowering.

Following the centenary of the property being entrusted into the care of the National Trust last year there were some changes made to the garden. We're working through the borders to refresh them with new stock to reflect the style and vegetation of an 18th century garden. 

Keep checking back with us throughout the year to see our project become a reality!
