Aberglasney is blossoming!
The weather of late has been exceptionally good and as a result the Gardens at Aberglasney are looking very good indeed. Our collection of Magnolias is in flower and Bishop Rudd’s Walk is at its best. Our tulip displays are even bigger this year and the sunshine ensures that the flowers open up to create a shimmering fanfare of colour. All in all there really couldn’t be a better time to visit Aberglasney. Head Gardener Joseph Atkin says that the next few weeks are possibly the best of the year!
Meanwhile should you need any further encouragement our 2015 events programme has begun in earnest. Kick off the bank holiday weekend by joining us for live ‘Music in the Pool Garden’ on Friday May the 1st.
