A garden in Greater Manchester has been named among the UK’s best to visit this Spring in a list by The Guardian.

Introducing the list, The Guardian says: “In the midst of winter with its low grey skies, the scents and colours of embryonic spring are a welcome morale booster.

“These gardens will offer spectacular views over the coming months, as banks of delicate snowdrops, and armies of budding daffs, bluebells and tulips return.”

Dunham Massey in Greater Manchester features in the list and visitors can expect to see a range of flowers and plants there.

What does The Guardian say about Dunham Massey?

The Guardian says: “One of the UK’s biggest winter gardens is already brightening the darkest months at Dunham Massey, not far from Manchester.

“Scarlet and ochre stems of dogwood and willow flame above snowdrops and early narcissi.

“They are joined from about March by starry blue scilla and Glory-of-the-snow. Dunham Massey’s gardeners planted more than 40,000 extra spring bulbs last year.

“New daffodil varieties include bold early-flowering January Silvers and striking, vivid-yellow Jetfires.

“Light pours into the 18th-century orangery and fallow deer, wandering through medieval parkland, start to shed their antlers.”

Dunham Massey is a National Trust site so is free to National Trust members.

The gardens are open daily and if you’re not a member you’ll need to pay to visit. Prices start from £4.70 and you can find out more about the costs via the website.
