Spring in The Alnwick Garden


Following the visit to the flower show, we had a lovely browse rounnd The Alnwick Garden…hope you enjoy the visit too……

Scillas in the grass…..sorry they don’t show up very well……a distant shot of The Pavillion.

The Cherry Orchard……there have been 180,000 approx….tulip bulbs planted under the cherry trees….alongside daffodils, crocus and scilla…..a similar amount will be planted over the next year or so. The variety is “The Madam”. The gardening volunteers planted most of these late last year.

Hopefully the cherry blossom will be open next weekend ready for the Dedication of the orchard. There was some blossom last year, but it was affected by a late frost. We are hoping for a better show this year, as it is the orchard’s first full year after planting.

Extending the season of the flowering cherry in The Garden, Prunus “The Bride”

Hope you enjoy this little “taster”… out for the crab apple blossom and roses in June…….
