Dazzling Daffodils

Dazzling Daffodils 20 – 24 March 2019

Feel uplifted this spring during Hever Castle’s Dazzling Daffodils event. With 14,000 new daffodil bulbs set to bloom across the gardens, there will be a wide range of varieties to enjoy.

This daffodil event throws the spotlight on the narcissus family and showcases the new and the best in daffodils.

On the 20th and 21st March, join tours of the Hever daffodils with bulb legend Johnny Walkers and Hever Castle’s head gardener Neil Miller. Listen to master grower Johnny Walkers, winner of 25 consecutive gold medals at RHS Chelsea giving a free talk and sharing his encyclopedic knowledge of bulbs accrued over a lifetime growing daffodils.

The 22nd, 23rd and 24th of March will be dedicated to daffodils too. On Friday 22nd enjoy a tour and talk with RHS Gardener, Kevin Tooher then on Saturday 23rd and Sunday 24th Hever Castle’s gardeners will be giving a tour of the garden. Plus let your little ones take part in children’s daffodil themed craft workshop on Saturday and Sunday.

An exciting new development for 2019 sees Hever Castle open up Park Wood to visitors. You will have a chance to see a rare double daffodil in woodland not usually open to the public. Narcissi Telamonius Plenus, or the ‘double daffodil’ dates from 1620 and has rarely been seen growing in the wild in the UK this century. 

The gates to Park Wood will remain open whilst the daffodils are in bloom and open again as soon as the bluebells come to life.
