The beauty of the spring display continues to unfold on a daily basis with fresh new growth and colourful blossoms. The garden is nearing the peak of its spring glory, revealing why it’s considered one of the most spectacular displays in the world.  Highlights for this week continue to be the magnificent Magnolia trees as well as the colourful cherries and plums. The bulbs are also out in full force with the Hyacinths at their peak and the Narcissus and Tulips coming on strong – this is a time of year not to be missed.
