Festival of Blossom

Celebrate the arrival of blossom at Greenway from 21 March - 28 April.

  • Booking not needed
  • Free event (admission applies)

From magnolias blooming overhead to an abundance of fruit trees and wild hedgerow flowers, the arrival of spring blossom is one of Greenway garden's highlights.

Between 21 March and 28 April, pick up a free blossom spotter sheet and have a go at identifying the types of blossom at Greenway. Take a photo under the blossom archway or try your hand at blossom origami in the house kitchen.

We highly encourage visitors to switch off and take a moment to slow down and enjoy the signs of new life. 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.
