Spring Cleaning at Herstmonceux Castle


With the winter months behind us, spring is now bringing new life and colour to the gardens and grounds.

A long term project is just coming to fruition. Months of clearing the rhododendrons from alongside the moat will offer more views of the castle from this side. It also means that emerging bluebells can now take centre stage.. 

Today Adam and Carl have been cutting and removing a storm damaged tree.

The emerging bluebells should be in full bloom by the end of the month and our tulips are in their early stages. Until they are ready, we still have the last of the daffodils and magnolias to admire.

Fiona, George and Jamie have been tidying the azalea garden ready for early May when we expect it to really come into its own.

Spring is a fantastic time to visit our themed gardens and managed woodland. We would love to see photos of you and your family enjoying your day, so please tag us on Facebook, Instagram or twitter.

We hope you have enjoyed this ‘behind the scenes’ look at our work and we look forward to introducing you to more friendly faces and further projects over the coming months.
