Seasonal highlights


....brings an abundance of colour; carpets of wild primroses, camellias, daffodils, skunk cabbage and butterburr bring the woodland to life.  Later, stunning displays of bluebells, candelabra primula, azaleas and rhododendrons blaze throughout the garden.


.... is an ideal time to watch the dozens of dragonflies and butterflies attracted to the masses of wild flowers including water mint, orange balsam purple loosestrife and hemp agrimony. 


.... is a glorious time of year with the seasons last burst of colours reflected in the dykes.  Hidden amongst the trees and fallen leaves weird and wonderful fungi make their appearance.
