RHS Garden Rosemoor, in Great Torrington, is already preparing to step into spring, with sweeps of colour starting to bejewel the meadows and borders and pushing the signs of winter away.More than 50,000 daffodils and crocuses have been planted in the meadow areas throughout the garden and are now starting to grow into season-long sweeps of colour. Naturalised daffodils and fritillaries thrive in meadows by the lake, while golden chalices of marsh marigolds and other water-loving plants are among spring's early risers featured in the stream and bog garden. Lady Anne's Garden is home to an ever-increasing selection of spring specialists. Colourful rhododendrons, magnolias and cherries provide shelter for a fascinating selection of shade-loving plants and bulbs. The woodland walks provide sheets of primroses, followed by bluebells, while the orchard and the fruit and vegetable garden are a feature in their own right. This year Rosemoor will be stepping into spring in style with a busy diary of events, kicking off with a free open day on March 8, based on the theme of vegetables and growing your own! The Great British Landscape Art Exhibition is being held from March 15 to 30, there is a Young Gardeners' Weekend over Easter and more special events to come in April.
