Spring at Kew Gardens
Every year we share hints and tips on the best things to see at Kew Gardens in spring.
Daffodils can be seen around the Temple of Aeolus. You can bathe in their glorious sunny glow (from March).
The 250 types of magnificent magnolias across the Gardens are a sight to behold in early April. The trees grouped together at Elizabeth Gate, with their large pink and white flowers, will stand out as a special highlight of your visit.
For more unusual, exotic bulbs visit the Davies Alpine House, with its changing displays from March to May.
The trees are alive
You will also be able to enjoy the sight of Kew’s trees as they awaken and burst with new life. The Cherry Walk is a popular highlight from mid-March.
Glory of the snow
Later in the season, thousands of deep-blue, starry-flowered Scilla forbesii carpet the lawns surrounding White Peaks. These delicate alpine plants are known as ‘glory of the snow’ in western Turkey, as they emerge from the melting snow of the mountains
