It's spring time in the gardens, and woodland animals are emerging from their slumber to welcome the season with you!
Join us in celebrating rebirth and regrowth in Spring Flower Show: Enchanted Forest as birds, frogs, ducks, bees and more critters awaken from their long winter snoozes to explore the tens of thousands of vibrant spring blooms that wash the glasshouse in color. The Conservatory is positively buzzing with life and bursting with blooms, offering a treat for the senses and the perfect way to spend a spring day. Set your heart aflutter in Palm Court as you witness the remarkable development of a chrysalis before a beautiful butterfly emerges amidst pops of pink hyacinths and yellow primula. Sink to the forest floor in the Serpentine Room as you wander beneath massive mushrooms, marvel at vibrant azaleas, snapdragons and tulips, and meet a friendly snail, frog and turtle on the banks of a tranquil pond. Then, meander among a sea of blue, coral, red and pink spring blooms in the Sunken Garden as feathered friends chirp and tweet from their perches. Colorful sights and whimsical delights are waiting around every corner and in nine display rooms at Spring Flower Show: Enchanted Forest!
