This week the Royal Horticultural Society are hosting the ‘virtual’ Chelsea Flower Show in conjunction with Mental Health Awareness Week.
Leeds Castle is proud to support the #MyChelseaGarden campaign to share positive images of our flowers and beautiful gardens on our website and social media channels.
Leeds Castle’s gardens continue to be maintained by a small team during this temporary period of closure ready for when we are able to reopen to our visitors once again.
The newly opened Princess Alexandra Gardens alongside the River Len is a beautiful approach to the Castle and be treated to a carpet of Daffodils in spring and other beautiful blooms throughout the year. The walk is particularly colourful throughout colder months when the leaves on the trees begin to change. The Culpeper Garden, a large cottage garden that was once a kitchen garden, featuring Roses, Poppies, and other plants. The Lady Baillie Mediterranean Garden terrace is also a favourite destination. Designed by the landscape architect, Christopher Carter, the garden is south-facing to ensure a Mediterranean style can be maintained all-year-round.
See the latest images in the gallery below, alongside some of our entries in the RHS Chelsea Fringe Festival over the past few years. Our quirky creations include a flowery punt, floral frames, an ‘inside-out’ shed and Wellington boot flower pots!
