I hope that this list of special garden events and activities held over the Father’s Day 2018 weekend will help you to enjoy a memorable, happy, and very special weekend with your family and friends. Here are the gardens and venues that are celebrating Father’s Day 2018 by offering discounts or free entry to fathers.
April is such a magical time of year! It’s quite simply awe inspiring to see the landscape being painted by mother nature in every beautiful shade of green, as more leaves unfurl and the view becomes ever greener each day. I love to be outside, surrounded by the birds singing and bees buzzing. On warm days you may see butterflies flying: look out for the green toned Brimstone butterfly this month.

If you get the chance to visit Kew Gardens before Sunday 11th March 2018, it’s worth making time to visit the Shirley Sherwood Gallery of Botanical Art, where you’ll be able to view Rebecca Louise Law’s latest art installation ‘Life in Death’.

Rosemoor Daffodil Competition will be held on Saturday 10th March 2018 and Sunday 11th March 2018. On Saturday, the Rosemoor Daffodil Competition will open at 11.30am after judging has finished.
Daffodils are such cheerful flowers, heralding the start of springtime, they are a joy to behold. There are many different varieties of daffodils, so consequently you can find daffodils flowering from as early as December until late May, and beyond in cooler areas of the country. Which is wonderful, as it provides us with plenty of time to enjoy and appreciate the daffodil’s beauty!
Happy new year! Happy new plants – what a great idea!
