Pick your own tulips at Coughton Court
11:14am Tuesday 8th April 2014 in News
AS spring blooms once more Coughton Court has announced its Spring Garden Festival will be returning alongside The Daffodil Society National Show.
An exciting event for budding garden enthusiasts, the event is the perfect opportunity to celebrate the beauty of the English garden in springtime.
Set against the beautiful backdrop of Coughton, The Daffodil Society will be showcasing hundreds of exhibits and experts will be on hand to answer any questions. Head Gardener Sam Tippins will be giving tours of the family gardens, which are now recognised as being amongst the best in England.
Visitors can pick up top tips, expert advice and purchase a variety of high quality gardening equipment, plants and seeds from the festival. An extensive collection of the plants on view in the gardens are home-grown and available to buy at the Throckmorton Family Plant Centre.
The ‘pick your own’ tulip patch will also be returning, weather permitting, so visitors can take a little bit of spring from Coughton home with them.
Abi Cole, marketing and events officer at Coughton Court, said: "The arrival of spring is always my favourite time to be at Coughton. The gardens burst into life with a kaleidoscope of colour and wildlife and the Spring Garden Festival is the perfect way to celebrate the beautiful gardens we have."
The even will take place on Saturday, April 19 and Sunday April 20. For more information visit nationaltrust.org.uk/coughtoncourt or call 01789 400777.
