March is beautiful at Easton. At the beginning of the month there may still be drifts of snowdrops followed by action in the Cedar and mini meadows featuring species tulips, anemone blanda and crocuses. A fine spring day is the perfect time to experience the awakening of these 400 year old gardens.
The gardens are open in aid of the National Gardens Scheme. All entry money for the day is donated to this worthwhile charity. The gardens will be full of spring bulbs including Narcissus and Tulips.
The gardens are open for Easter with some ‘eggcellent’ activities for children. Spring bulbs, 400 years of history and great food in the tearoom as always!
Join us for willow weaving or flower arranging, sweet pea and cutflower workshops in our beautifully converted Coach House.
These famous 400 year old gardens in the heart of England encapsulate everything that is great about the British summer. To reflect this, we are launching a photography competition: THE ESSENCE OF SUMMER and are looking for the best images of summer from our visitors and all photographers throughout the British Isles. To inspire you we are offering a £500 prize for the winner and have asked some of the most influential people in our world to judge your work.
Roses, meadows, flowery borders, swallows, cream teas and June in England, need we say more? Events to be confirmed.
Every year we raise hundreds of sweet pea plants from seed

Activities include pumpkin rolling, which challenges players to roll a pumpkin down the beautiful grass terraces without breaking your pumpkin, the furthest roller wins.
Afterwards, visitors can feed the snails, create their own grass hedgehog, design Halloween masks and explore the 12 acres of gardens. There are conkers to find, dens to build or simply kick a ball on the lawns.
The tearoom is open every day serving warming homemade soups and light lunches. If the sun is shining then families are welcome to bring a picnic.
Adults can walk in 12 acres of grounds, find out the fascinating history behind these 400 year old gardens and enjoy some relaxed Christmas shopping in the well stocked shop which is full of unusual quality gifts.
The Gardens are closed for the winter but will reopen for Snowdrop Week in February. In the meantime we are taking group bookings and the online shop is open for sweet pea sales. In the garden we are manuring and restoring 100′s of metres of beds, lawns and plants. Work continues to paintwork and brickwork ready for the gardens to look their best for the following year.
