Spring at Sissinghurst Castle Garden
Spring sees lots of changes here at Sissinghurst, with the garden being fully open to enjoy the clusters of daffodils in the orchard as well as an array of colour around the estate
In the garden
Spring sees the start of the early season bloom, and we're lucky enough here at Sissinghurst to have a flurry of early season colour in some areas of the garden, one of those spaces being the Lime Walk.
The Lime Walk is lined by a gallery of lime trees and is always looking at it's finest during this time of the year, and with some colourful low level planting in the borders it makes for a great sight during the spring months.
Another sight not to miss during spring is our orchard which will be brimming with daffodils and crocuses. The orchard sits within the garden and is framed by the moat, a great spot to sit back, relax and enjoy the view.
This year we have lots planned for the Easter break. The ever popular Cadbury Easter egg hunt returns for another year, taking place between Friday 19 - Monday 22 April, 11am-3.30pm, £3 per person. From Saturday 6 April we'll be turning the Oast into a nature themed play area, with lots of ranger and veg gardener activities as well as wild arts and crafts for all the family to enjoy. Make your way to visitor reception when you arrive to find out more about what's on during your visit.
Around the estate
It's not just the garden that gets a coating of spring colour at Sissinghurst, there's also our 450 acre estate which comes to life during this time of year. Crocuses and daffodils start the season off in a flurry, dotted around the vast woodland and in the surrounding fields.
April sees the bluebells come into their own, with splatters of colour on the ground creating a carpet of purple amongst the trees.
