April at the Garden

April 22, 2019

During the month of April, the Garden is open every day from 11am until 7pm and until 10pm on Friday and Saturday nights.

The Garden is abundant with the colour and scent of Spring flowers and blossom – Cherry, Plum and Apple Blossom, late-flowering Daffodils, Snowflakes and our show-stopping Tulips in pots and containers. Lots of inspiration for small space and container gardening!

You can enjoy our delicious home made veg based soups and freshly baked cakes served from our Garden Cafe, as well as our selection of local craft beers, cider and wine.

With each purchase you make at our Cafe, you help keep the Garden open every day, 12 months a year for people and wildlife to enjoy and are supporting our community events and education programme.

Easter weekend extended opening: Thursday 18 – Sunday 21 April, 11am – 10pm & Bank holiday Monday, 11am-7pm
