June Bloom at Wimpole

Alliums in the Walled Garden at Wimpole

In June with the longer days, gardens are traditionally at their best with roses and flowers in the first flush and luscious greenery still in abundance.

At Wimpole June is bursting with colourful blooms, as back in the Autumn of 2015 Head Gardener, Phillip Whaites and the garden team of staff and volunteers planted 180,000 bulbs over 12 acres of the Pleasure Grounds.  Further bulbs were added in the Autumn of 2016.

These summer flowering bulbs created drifts of purples, whites and yellows under the trees, in and amongst the informal grassland which lead visitors through the garden.

Varieties included white and purple Alliums; the white star like Camassia; delicate pinky purple Gladioli byzantinus and the striking yellow of Foxtail lilies. 

Not to feel left out, the rest of the estate has floral displays, created by our Flower Team, from our cut flowers borders in the Walled Garden.  All in all, a spectacular June Bloom at Wimpole, so don't miss it in 2017.
