The Weir Garden

If you are looking for a Spring break, March through to May in Herefordshire is a magical time. Especially this year when we have had little frost or snow, spring has very definitely sprung with swaths of daffodils and early blossoms on the trees. Whilst it is certainly not peak season, it is a great time to visit the county. Indeed it is often the case of 4 seasons in one day, but with good clothing and an eye on the forecast it can be a great time to enjoy exploring the county.

One place we enjoy visiting at this time of year is The Weir Garden. The Weir Garden is an unusual and stunning garden of four hectares (ten acres) with sweeping views along the River Wye and Herefordshire countryside. Owned by National Trust, the gardens are managed to create a varied habitat for a wide range of wildlife, with the garden itself spectacular all year round – drifts of spring bulbs give way to wild flowers, followed by autumn colour.

The Weir is an all year round tranquil riverside garden but its best display of flowers and bulbs is probably in the spring. From around mid January to late May you can visit the garden everyday to see something new bursting through the tree roots. You’ll enjoy walking through the snowdrops during January which then make way for daffodils, scilla, chinodoxa and bluebells as spring marches on.
