What's happening in the garden this month?

A sea of blue camassias are beginning to flow and ripple through the Grass Meadow and there are many busy birds in the neighbouring Bird Hide

The most striking feature in the garden at the moment is the vibrant, sweeping displays of statuesque tulips and these are complemented by the softer, more delicate blooms of snakehead fritillaries, magnolias and cherry blossoms.

In May, large drifts of alliums will line the banks near the top pond and dominate, these will be partnered by the soft pretty candelabra primulas growing in the stream bed.

   Plant of the month  
Our plant of the month is Geums. These are fast growing, clump forming perennials, ideally placed at the front of the border. They come in striking colours such as orange, red, yellow, peach, pink and many others.  Long flowering period.
