Celebrate the Arrival of Spring!
Join us at Ashton’s Garden Centre on Saturdays and Sundays this month to celebrate the arrival of Spring with a woodland walk lined with thousands of daffodils that’ll wash away those winter blues. With educational and interesting fact signage to be found along the way, opportunities for that perfect selfie, spots to sit and enjoy the scenery and a third of the walk along a river – you’ll feel the stresses of the world melt away as you enjoy the chance to get out after a long cold winter! We also have a large selection of Daffodils potted up and ready to take home (available whilst stocks last), with many varieties you will have seen during your walk. The Daffodil Walk & Spring Celebration is not to be missed rain or shine! It is Spring, after all!
Fun for All the Kids
Let the kids run free and enjoy the great outdoors. With magical signs along the walk, a free scavenger hunt and colouring sheet they’re sure to have fun! Plus on Saturday May 7th – Vana will be joining us with her beautiful Angora Bunnies – feel there super soft fur and maybe get a photo with them and the kids. And with award winning Author Michelle Robinson making appearances even young children will find something to enjoy.
