The Woodland Walk in Spring

We hope everyone is holding up in these rather strange circumstances. As promised, we said we would bring the gardens to you so here’s a little update about the Woodland Walk…

Chionodoxa in the Cedar Meadow

In spring, nature gives us thousands more bulbs in every shape and colour and the display is every bit as enticing as late winter. Add the birdsong, the green vegetation and a glimpse of sunshine and the landscape awakens with heart stopping beauty.

The Woodland Walk

The woodland walk is unfurling in an unstoppable succession of growth and flower power. Dog’s mercury, feverfew and grey-green snowdrop foliage cover the ground and give a verdant backdrop to our bulbs; narcissus, hyacinths and imperial fritillaries. Weaving through these beauties are perennials including scented wild violets, the hellebores and brunnera which creates a haze of forget-me-not blue.

Brunnera in the Woodland Walk

They have only this time to make their presence felt before they have to give way to the Aquilegias and foxgloves. Every day is a changing display of colour, scent and form.
