In the garden


Springtime at Fulham Palace is a time of simple joys and gentle transitions. Everywhere you look, bulbs are pushing through the soil, bringing pops of colour like daffodils near All Saints Church, tulips in the walled garden and bluebells in the woods.

In the walled garden, the wisteria is dripping with flower buds and ready to burst into full bloom in April, on its 70m long metal hoop supports. The walled garden vinery becomes packed to the brim with tender annuals waiting to be planted out when the risk of frost has gone.

Taking a walk through the woodland you’ll notice the delicate cow parsley and the fresh green leaves on the hazel trees. Even the trees, including the fruit trees in the walled garden and the orchard, are joining in the seasonal display with their blossoms.

These spring blooms not only look beautiful but also provide important early food for pollinators, adding to the natural charm of the garden.

Look out for:

  •  gorgeous spring bulb displays
  •  apple arch and orchard blossoms
  • the beautiful wisteria in bloom
  • bird song and wildlife activity
