Spring at Eden
As the days grow longer, and the sun begins to shine with a little more warmth, we’re putting the long winter behind us and welcoming in the spring at Eden! You’ll find Eden awash with colour and scent. From the fabulous display of tulips, aloes and proteas blooming in our Mediterranean Biome, to the exotic ‘firework flowers’ of the Guiana Chestnut, the eccentric but beautiful flowers of the Dutchman’s Pipe plant in the Rainforest Biome and swathes of daffodils painting the outdoor landscape in wonderful sunny yellows, spring arrives in glorious technicolour at Eden!
If you fancy honing your gardening knowledge, we’re also offer a range of gardening courses which take place between September and March, taught by our own horticulturists. Choose from one-hour, half-day or full-day sessions.

This popular event returns with a new twist. This year we’ll be exploring the freaky side of food, where it comes from and, of course, where plants come in!

Whilst the chill winds and lashing rain of mid-winter do their worst out there, let us cheer ourselves up.
