Magnolia Heaven at Nymans

Spring Hellebores

Wow – what a glorious afternoon at Nymans National Trust garden… you can’t beat a bit of spring sunshine.

I was surprised there weren’t more people out and about enjoying the show but it’s not often I have the opportunity to sneak out on a work day either and even rarer that I have the camera with me. I’d be hoping to slip in and catch the spring show for a while because the walled garden in particular is amazing at this time of year and today was well worth the stop.


Glandiflora and Stellata magnolias were the star of the show for me against a Nymans mass of daffs and spring bulbs. It’s great to see these magnificent trees in their mature glory and the way they have them planted en masse at Nymans really makes the most of their fragrance.

Pulmenarias, hellebores, frillaries, prunus and spring rhododendrons were also looking pretty special against the victorian walls and I was happy to catch a queen bumble out for early nectar.

I’ve had to whittle the photos down from 145 to my top 5 but hopeful it gives you a taste of the afternoon! – Emily
