June Bloom 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 the herbaceous borders in the Walled Garden start to come in their own and summer bulbs scattered through the Pleasure Grounds open up in the sunshine.

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