At last, Spring seems to have arrived and the plants are bursting out into flower.

Marwood Hill Garden achieved great success at the Royal Horticultural Societies 2013 National Rhododendron and Camellia Show, held at RHS Rosemoor in April 2013.

Some warm weather finally arrived, and the garden has responded with an explosion of colour around every corner.  Here are just a few of delights awaiting our visitors this month.

Flaming June has arrived, and so far is living up to the name - we hope it will continue.  Some of the larger shrubs and trees are now coming into their own - look out especially for the unusual Hankerchief tree, with its hankie-like flowers.

Unusual, colourful, spectacular - watch out for these on your visit this month.

The Annuals Flower Meadow at the top of the far hillside is ablaze with colour right now.

When you are walking along the north side of the Bottom Lake, look out for the burnt sugar fragrance from the stately Cercidiphyllum japonicum pendulum, and try to spot the short-lived but spectacular blooms of the Tiger Flower in the borders around the Plant Sales area and Tea Shop.

Now, in late summer the garden provides a final burst of glorious colour before the quieter autumn shades appear - don't miss these treasures on your next visit.

Visit the Walled Garden Plant Sale area during the month of October and you will find a fabulous selection of plants which have been reduced and some real bargains.
