2020 Daffodil Gardens and Events

Daffodils are such cheerful flowers.  Full of hope and heralding the start of springtime; daffodils are a joy to behold.  Being such a popular flower, daffodils have been bred, selected, and re-selected, over a great many years, which has resulted in the creation of a diverse range of daffodil flowers.  We can now purchase daffodils that grow to a range of sizes and heights, choosing from bulbs that produce dramatically different coloured flowers and various sizes of daffodil blooms.

The Winton Capital Beauty of Mathematics Garden was designed by Nick Bailey, the Head Gardener of the Chelsea Physic Garden, and built by Gardenlink.  

Nick Bailey’s design for The Winton Capital Beauty of Mathematics Garden focuses on the mathematical patterns that appear in plants and in nature, underpinning our natural world – such as the Golden Ratio.  These mathematical patterns are expressed throughout the garden’s structure, the layout of the planting, and the featured plants.
