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.

Burrow Farm Gardens provide 13 acres of colour-themed planting and lawns that sweep past an ancient oak to the lake. The Anniversary Garden, created in 2010, with its ornamental grasses and perennials, is at its best at this time of year. Other areas include the Terrace Garden, Rose Garden, Millennium Garden, Woodland Garden and Wildflower Meadow which contains two wildlife ponds.
In contrast, the one-acre plantsman’s garden at Prospect House is hidden behind high walls with Axe valley views. Well- stocked borders of rare and tender shrubs mingle with late summer perennials including rudbeckia, helenium, echinacea, helianthus, crocosmia, grasses and 200 varieties of salvia.
