[Maple Glen]
We have planted a wide range of plants and trees to try and have something looking its best throughout the year:

Spring
Spring arrives in August and September with early bulbs (including many thousands of Snowdrops). September for flowering cherry trees and miniature narcissus. October for daffodils (we have a collection of over 600 named varieties), Spring maple foliage, rhododendrons and azaleas. Bluebells, late October. Early November for flowering shrubs, and Mollis Azaleas at their peak.

Winter
In the winter months of May through July Maple Glen is a vastly different place. Denuded of leaves the trees afford more of a view of the structure of the garden and the surrounding countryside and the large collection of trees and conifers help provide colour and interest.
