What should you be planting now? month by month advice
Chenies Manor, Rickmansworth
To see Bloms Bulbs at their very best why not visit our Show Garden at Chenies Manor, Rickmansworth. It is open to the public from April to October, Wednesdays and Thursdays from 2- 5pm. The house is also open to visitors where it is reported that Henry VIII's ghost still roams through the rooms today.
The high point at Chenies is the Spring season when over 7,000 tulips come into bloom to form a truly breathtaking display. The Tulips are arranged throughout the gardens in colour themes: white and palest yellow in the White Garden, reds, oranges and yellows in the South Border, a single colour in the Rose Gardens next to the house (softest yellow this year). Lastly, there are an amazing variety of grouped plantings in the Sunken Garden, all under-planted with complementary schemes of forget-me-knots, wallflowers and bellis daisies, amid permanent herbaceous plantings.
Tulip Show Garden from April until the end of May. Open Wednesdays and Thursdays from 2-5pm. Open Spring Bank Holiday.
