Seasonal Highlights

 

The Gardens are open every day except Christmas day and there is something new to see on every one of them!

Our seasonal walks give a suggested route around the Gardens designed to help you to enjoy the plant collection to the full whenever you visit.

To make sure you don’t miss the highlights, the table below shows you the best areas of the garden during the spring and summer.

In addition check out the Plants of the Month page for our gardeners’ choice of their favourites and the Star Plants page to make sure you don’t miss particularly unusual historical and botanical specimens.
