Spring Tour & Talk In The Gardens

Spring Tour, Talk & Demonstration with Burghley's Head Gardener & Team

Put on your walking boots and come along for an unmissable afternoon with Burghley's favourite gardening duo!

With longer, brighter days and the warmth gradually returning, it's time to get out and start exploring. Join Head Gardener Joe Whitehead and Senior Gardener James Knight on a tour of the Gardens. Learn about the history of the Gardens and spot key highlights for the time of year.

Joe will be sharing seasonal gardening advice and insights, plus he will share more about what the Gardens team have planned as they head into summer. And that's not it... James will show you how best to create a vibrant, spring flower arrangement.
