| TULIP FESTIVAL
One of the highlights of the early season at Pashley Manor Gardens
is the Tulip Festival. Visitors return year after year, mesmerised by the sheer
volume of colour and variety of the massed tulips.
BLUEBELL WALK End
of April - Mid May
We open part of our woodland area which, in the flowering
season, is covered in a soft blue mantle of thousands of bluebells.
Visitors are welcome to walk through this fairy tale area.
SPECIAL ROSE WEEKEND The gardens are spectacular through spring,
summer and autumn but it is in June that the fragrant, colour
themed plantings of roses are at their best. A representative
from Peter Beales Roses, winners of 16 Chelsea Gold Medals, will
be leading walks around the gardens on Friday, Saturday and Sunday
giving advice on the growing and care of roses
KITCHEN GARDEN WEEKEND For
this weekend in July there will be practical advice from experts;
a focus on how the produce from the garden is used and an emphasis
on local produce - including the local honey and homemade chutney sold
in the gift shop.
LILY TIME Mid
July to mid August (open on normal days only)
Hundreds of lilies in over 40 fascinating varieties,
some highly perfumed, planted throughout the gardens and
in the woodland area to make a stunning high summer display.
