The garden begins to look fresh and vibrant in the springtime. With the aroma of wild garlic, the sight of colourful tulips and the sound of birdsong why not come and enjoy the blues skies mingled with spring showers?

A Natural garden 

Spring is a wonderful time at The Weir Garden. In mid to late April you can see the beginning of the bluebells, wild garlic, tulips in the walled garden and our most popular snake’s head fritillary plant.Songbirds fill the skies over the garden, busy collecting insects and berries for their young and you may even spot a bellowing lamb or two in the surrounding fields.

Tea Tent 

All that walking makes for hungry tummies. Our tea tent supplies visitors with cakes, soup and hot drinks, we trust visitors to pop their money into an honesty box inside the tent and welcome you to either relax on one of our newly refurbished benches or to picnic in the garden itself.
