Despite the cold temperature today within the garden things are at last definitely moving towards Spring. All around you can see signs of buds swelling and leaves and blooms peering out! Many blooms are already out from the expected Camellias, Rhododendrons, Primroses and Daffodils to Chinodoxa and Dog Tooth Violets within the Rockery and Daphne’s alongside benches for scent. Other Spring colour is provided by Cornus mas with it’s subtle but effective blooms along the Arboretum Walk and in the Ravine, Azalea praecox punctuates the Grotto Pond with its bright pink flowers.

Most exciting is the appearance of thousands of Tulips planted in November which we hope will produce a mass display to coincide with Florabundance, a festival of Spring Flowers in the House during the first week of May.
