Tulips from . . .

. . . Hever Castle & gardens  - now hosting its first ever Tulip Celebration.  The gardening team are proud to present its inauguaral Tulip Celebration with  7,000 tulips, in 60 varieties planted along the Pergola Walk, Pompeiian Wall, Tudor Garden and Italian Garden. 

Due to the exceptionally warm weather, many of the tulips are in full bloom so now's the time to visit and admire.  Free garden tours are on offer with Head Gardener Neil Miller from 24-28 April and 2-7 May (excluding Bank Holiday weekend).  A daily talk, 2 pm, on the history of the tulip will tell you more about this stunning bulb. The castle interior will also be dressed with tulips.

In fact, if you visit Hever over the next few weeks, it'll be hard to miss a tulip!  Tulips are intriguing bulbs, and have a fascinating history so this is definitely a visit to make this Spring.

 

National Gardening Week 10 - 16 April

What better title for a week in Spring than RHS National Gardening Week? After months of green-fingered frustration the starting gun has been fired for all gardening enthusiasts to be released into their horticultural playgrounds!

In celebration Hever Castle is calling all adults and children to visit and be inspired by the stunning Hever gardens, and the talented and informed Castle gardening team. 

Visitors can design (for small additional charge) and take home a miniature garden, which once established and blooming can be photographed for entry into the June Hever in Bloom competition.

Start planning your garden now!  Who knows, this might be the start of a talented gardener's Chelsea career.
