TULIP Celebrations: 19 – 24 april 2022
Feel uplifted by over 40,000 tulips proudly standing to attention and providing a visual feast of spring colour.
A Kaleidoscope of brightly coloured parrot, Darwin, peony and triumph tulips will declare that spring has well and truly arrived at Hever Castle & Gardens this April.
Head Gardener, Neil Miller, a fan of bold bright colours, has selected a palette for 2022 that celebrates spring in all its glory and heralds the start of warmer days to come.
The epitome of elegance, tulips look spectacular planted en masse in either a kaleidoscope of mixed colours or in a uniform colour palette. The Italian Garden at Hever Castle will play host to the largest of the tulip planting displays with a kaleidoscope of colours fanning down the length of the gardens towards the Loggia and the lake.
Tulipa Abu Hassa will greet visitors at the Castle gate, while a new bed of tulips close to The Garden Staircase will provide an impressive impact. The Italian Garden with its ornate sculpture will provide a stunning backdrop for more formal tulip displays in geometric patterns. Over on Pergola Walk, tulips of every hue have been allowed to mix and float together to form a colourful coat that Joseph himself would envy.
Tulipa Ballerina, a deep orange and scented flower will bloom around the walls of the famous Castle interplanted with thousands of ‘Persian carpet’ wallflowers.
Throughout Tulip Celebrations, you’ll also be able to join daily garden tours led by Hever Castle’s gardening team.
Once you have worked up an appetite walking around the gardens, enjoy a variety of food options including Solley’s ice cream, homemade sandwiches and mouth-watering homemade cakes.
