Spring is here and it is making gardening so enjoyable. The warmer weather brings new possibilities. There are countless ways to transform a garden. Planting colourful garden beds, a newly shaped lawn, trimmed trees and bushes are just some of them.
Get inspired by these spectacular spring gardens from around the UK.
Exbury Gardens boast a fantastic show of colour with blossoming trees and bushes such as rhododendrons, camellias, and azaleas. There are pathways lined with wildflowers, woodland areas to discover and a small river. In April, the Azaleas begin to flower and are a beautiful sight on a spring walk. Spring and early summer can be the perfect time to take a trip to Southampton to see the gardens. More recently younger rhododendron plants have been planted and some magnolias are flowering vibrantly. Exbury can provide enough inspiration to turn your own garden into a peaceful, idyllic location.
Chelsea Physic Garden
Chelsea Physic Garden in London is more than just a park to walk through. This small green area has a rich history that goes back centuries and offers courses on medicinal herbs and plants, a summer school and much more. This is a perfect place to educate yourself and take in all its beauty at the same time. What makes it even more valuable is that this is a relatively hidden spot located by the Thames. You can explore the garden online through 360-degree images.
Tremenheere Sculpture Gardens

There is also some artwork on display in the garden, which could offer inspiration for your own home. The Tremenheere Gardens even contain an art gallery. It is also possible to organise a wedding here. You will most likely find some stunning locations if you visit these gardens.
South Devon Gardens
If you prefer country gardens, a great place to get inspiration for your own garden is South Devon. A beautiful 20th-century estate in Coleton Fishacre boasts a tasteful garden with blooming trees and water features. To fully take in the new spring blossoms, Coleton Fishacre gardens are celebrating #BlossomWatch day this year on 24 April. On this day, visitors post pictures of the blossoms they captured on social media and tag the gardens. This is a good way to inspire yourself for your own projects. And if you do decide to visit and choose to hike here, don’t forget to take in the ocean views on the way!
