National Gardening Day

Gardens at Oakfield park

Posted / 11th April 2019

Our head gardener, Wendy Bridgett made the most of the sunshine this week ahead of National Gardening Day, which takes place this Sunday, 14th April.

Wendy was busy pruning the Fritillaria imperialis flowers which are more commonly known as crown imperial. The bulb is native to mountainous regions in Turkey, western Iran and eastwards to Kashmir and it is grown for its large and spectacular clusters of bell-shaped flowers in late-spring.

The park is open from Wednesday – Sunday from 12noon to 6pm, so be sure to see these wonderful and colourful flowers.
