6,000 tulips on show at Constable Burton Hall Gardens Tulip Festival

Constable Burton Hall Gardens Tulip Festival takes this Bank Holiday weekend.

More than 6,000 tulips, with over 100 different varieties, have been planted among the formal and woodland gardens.

Imogen Wyvill, from the hall, said: “As the northern show garden for Bloms Bulbs, winner of 69 Chelsea Gold Medals, we will be showcasing their incredible collection of flowers – a vibrant mix of classic favourites and exciting new varieties.

“This year our long border features the Beauty of Spring tulip, and this really is the most beautiful time of year in our gardens.

“Our planting schemes are designed to inspire you; discover the versatility of this glorious spring flower and let your imagination run wild planning your own garden designs.

“Our lawn marquees will host a stunning display of cut flowers from Bloms own nursery and there will be expert advice on hand though the Bloms team in attendance.”

She added: “The gardens have never looked better and as our estate head gardener Andrew Moss retires this year after 25 years this will be a very special send off for him as his swan song festival.

“He is second generation head gardener at Constable Burton having taken on the job from his father.”

The festival runs over the early May bank holiday weekend.
