Give mum a day out with spring flowers and sweet treats on Mother's Day, 31 March 2019
A day at an RHS Garden is the perfect Mother’s Day idea. Take a relaxed stroll to enjoy bright displays of spring bulbs, vibrant camellias and fresh new growth at every turn, rounding off your visit with a scrumptious afternoon tea in one of our cafés or restaurants.
Soak up spring with a Mother's Day weekend walk at Wisley. Visit the orchard for the first blossom and be uplifted by carpets of spring-flowering bulbs in the Alpine Meadow.
Early camellias will also be giving a taste of things to come on Battleston Hill and in Oakwood; C. x williamsii ‘Donation’ leads the charge with its showy, light rose-pink flowers. Also look out for the furry buds of magnolias slowly breaking to reveal star – and goblet-shaped blooms in pink, white and yellow.
Treat mum to tea and cake in one of our eateries then head to the World of Alpines Show in the Glasshouse Gallery for an array of colourful and unusual alpine plants and bulbs, and the Glasshouse to see the Palms and cycads.
With spring in full bloom you can enjoy a special family day out in beautiful surroundings filled with golden daffodils, colourful camellias and glorious birdsong.
Be sure to take a look at the Iris reticulata trial beds, where you'll find around 90 different irises bursting into bloom.
Make your visit extra special with our carvery or afternoon tea package –enjoy a carvery of beef, turkey and gammon served with vegetables for just £16.95, with a choice of desserts. Children’s size portions also available. The vegan option is red lentil and sweet potato loaf.
Afternoon tea, 12noon-3pm in the old thatched barn offers sandwiches, warm sausage roll, scones, cakes and a hot drink for just £17.95, plus normal garden admission. Prosecco afternoon tea also available at £22.90 per person. We’ve even got a special children’s afternoon tea package at just £9.95 including fun items such as fairy cupcakes and jam tarts.
Booking essential on 01245 400 256. Normal garden admission applies (non-RHS members can take advantage of the discounted entrance price of just £6 per person when making a booking).
Plan your visit to Hyde Hall
Treat mum to our Sunday Carvery in the Garden Kitchen Restaurant, followed by a wonderful walk through the garden as spring bursts into bloom. We have planted more than 40,000 spring-flowering bulbs across the garden, so the display should be spectacular.
Plan your visit to Rosemoor
Bring Mum for a leisurely stroll around the garden. Take in the spectacular spring bulb displays – from daffodils and hyacinths to scillas and trilliums – and perhaps a coffee and cake at Bettys Café Tea Rooms next door. Don’t miss a beautiful display of textiles available to browse and buy in the historic Bath House, from felt and applique to embroidery and woollen work.
