The Botanical Garden throughout the year
The Botanical Garden is open for visitors throughout the year. Each season offers something special.
During the winter the geometric shapes of the Baroque Garden are particularly striking, the Linneanum Orangery is full of Mediterranean trees and bushes, and the Tropical Glasshouse is a haven of warmth and light. With the coming of spring the lawns and rockeries burst with flowering bulbs and anemonies. The magnolias, cherries and tulips come into bloom. A wide range of plants continue the floral display throughout the summer. As late summer approaches the kitchen gardens are at their most beautiful and the autumn offers a colourful display from both native and exotic trees and bushes.
