Springfields Festival Gardens 2024

We welcome you to take a stroll around fifteen acres of mature gardens to view our magnificent spring and summer seasonal floral displays. 

The Head Gardener creates a different planting design theme each year, taking into consideration early, mid, and late varieties of daffodils, hyacinths, alliums, tulips, and lots of other bulbs that compliment his spring seasonal displays.

Our hidden gem National Narcissus Collection, Hyacinth & Dahlia Collection may be viewed by attending a pre-booked garden tours or simply engage by using our interactive map to show our seasonal planting lists and any rare species set within the gardens.

Our Spring Flower & Garden Show takes place 13th & 14th April 2024 to include our Annual Daffodil Show. 

Best time to visit the gardens for Tulips in Bloom will be 27th & 28th April 2024 (weather dependent).   

Later in the season May to June (five weeks) we uplift over 130,000 spring bulbs to direct plant over 1,200 dahlia tubers to include over 100 varieties, creating stunning summer/autumn displays.

Come and join us with a host of seasonal events, walks, activities, and horticultural adventures.

Our Story

Springfields Festival Gardens are a beautifully landscaped area, featuring Chelsea-style celebrity showcase gardens, including designs by Charlie Dimmock, Chris Beardshaw, Kim Wilde and Steven Woodhams, and a spectacular Japanese Garden by Sansui Design.

The Gardens were completely redeveloped in 2004, in conjunction with Springfields Horticultural Society, a charity dedicated to the improvement and growth of horticulture and floral design in the Spalding region.

FREE Admission

Open all year round with FREE admission (except during fund-raising events), Springfields Festival Gardens were first opened in 1966 as the shop window for the flower bulb industry, introducing members of the public, amateur gardeners and enthusiasts to a wide range of horticultural experiences.
