Spring at The Alnwick Garden

Even before the official arrival of spring, there are bulbs in bloom here at The Alnwick Garden. Bulb planting has gathered pace here over the past decade; once they were counted in hundreds of thousands but now it has become millions. The woodland leading to the Ornamental Garden is awash from late January with Chonodoxa (glory-of-the-snow), blue with white centre, the violet blue Scilla Siberica and many more.

Spring kick starts our year of events off with Easter holidays.

Cherry Blossom: Latest Update

  • Monday 17th April, 5pm

    Having had a fantastic showing of blossom, the petals are now starting to fall like snow covering the hillside with a white hue.


    If you haven’t seen the spectacle yet you have until the end of this week, depending on the weather before the leaves unfurl, tinged with copper and the blossom will be a memory until next spring.


    Within the next two weeks the alliums will produce their purple globes in amongst a cloud of white cow parsley to add interest to the Cherry Orchard.

Coming Soon - Billionaire Boy

Heartbreak Productions, together with Mr Spud and his son, Joe, would like to invite you to a garage sale (they used to own 500 garages) where they will be selling their final belongings to raise some money to buy food. The Formula 1 racing car has already been taken by the bailiffs, but there might be something interesting left. Bring your picnics, blankets and fold up chairs and come to the helicopter pad outside at Bumfresh Towers to hear the story of how Mr Spud made his billions and lost it all… and how Joe became the richest boy in the world.
