Get ready blossom watchers, here’s our top picks… 


Isabella Plantation, Richmond Park 

While peak season is around late April, early May, the area starts to bloom in March with early flowering magnolia. See the Magnolia stellata above Thomson’s Pond. Narcissi grow on the lawn near Broomfield Hill car park, and there are camellias and rhododendron, too. 


Painshill Park, Cobham 

The bright yellow bloom of daffodils is a highlight of Painshill in spring. The area around the visitor centre is a top spot for daffs and wander over to the bottom of the vineyard where they line the lake.

Hampton Court Palace 

The Wilderness area is a host of golden daffodils during March. The display lasts about six weeks with the most flowers appearing between the third and fourth week of the month. 


Kew Gardens 

The gardens are abloom with a carpet of crocuses and the Magnolia campbellii, or ‘pink tulip tree’, is one of the first magnolia trees to bloom at Kew between February and March.  


RHS Wisley 

A spring walk around Wisley will reveal a sea of crocuses around the conifer lawn. Between March and June, Battleston Hill starts to come to life with camellias, magnolias, rhododendrons and azaleas. 


Cannizaro Park, Wimbledon 

Take a wander among the crocuses at the gorgeous Cannizaro where there is a stunning display come early spring.
