Spring Walk & Lunch with the Head Gardener

About

Seasonal highlights and a tour of the Swiss Garden with our Head Gardener, who will share the garden's story and explain how it is cared for today. Enjoy lunch in the lovely Garden Room afterwards, with an opportunity to chat informally to senior members of the garden team, who can answer questions about what you've seen on the tour and developments in the garden.

Highlights include swathes of daffodils throughout the garden, a selection of Rhododendrons and other spring flowering shrubs, and alpine plants in the Rock Garden.

Please note this event is aimed at 16+.

£35 per person
