Blossom Week

Celebrate Blossom Week at Coleton Fishacre from 20-27 April.

  • Booking not needed
  • Free event (admission applies)

From the apple trees on arrival to the show stopping ornamental cherry trees in the garden, the spring blossom display at Coleton Fishacre is one of the garden highlights.

During Blossom Week (20-27 April), pick up a free blossom spotter sheet and have a go at identifying the different blossom at Coleton Fishacre.

As you wander, look for prompts around the garden. The beauty of blossom doesn't last very long, so why not get creative with a tanka poetry card or take a moment to bathe under the delicate petals.

Connecting with nature, even for a few minutes, can give us an escape from the stresses of daily life and give us the space to gather our thoughts.

You could take photos of new blooms, have a picnic under the blossom, practise mindfulness or forest bathing. Join in and share your photos on social media using #BlossomWatch.
