Heralding Spring

Sunday 21 - Sunday 28 January 2024

Join us in welcoming the first signs of spring when the Garden reopens on Sunday 21 January 2024. Visit during a celebration of the earliest spring blooms, the coming of warmer weather and lighter days.

Pick up a map and follow the trail around the Garden and discover some of our many species of snowdrops and early spring plants – from Citrus x aurantium a 70 year-old grapefruit tree, to Chimonanthus praecox, commonly known as wintersweet, with its delightful fragrance.

There will also be a plant sale run by our Growing Friends Volunteers, selling a selection of spring plants – including hellebores, irises and, of course, lots of different snowdrops! Make sure you stop by to pick up your own little piece of spring.

Throughout the week our knowledgeable Volunteer Guides will be offering tours of the Garden. As the tours are delivered by a volunteer team, we cannot guarantee they will be running on the day, so just ask when you arrive and we’ll let you know.

Open: Sunday 21 January – Sunday 28 January 2024 (excluding Saturday 27 January), 11am – 4pm, last entry 3.30pm.

Tickets: £10.50 per adult. Book below!

We will also be hosting a range of talks, tours and workshops. This year will see the return of our popular kokedama workshops, a tour with a member of the Gardening Team, and more.
