Springfields Festival Gardens 2021 Spring Blooms
This year’s summer season growing cycle is in full swing we have commenced our 'Dahlia Collection Planting Plan' by direct planting many different varieties throughout the gardens. A lot of the tulips have been lifted and we still have some areas to do such as the main woodland, so please bear with us during this change over of season.
This year we are very grateful to Edyta our garden team member who has taken time over the last two months to grow our own plants showcased at our Francis Hanson border beds. Along with a beautiful array of Alliums kindly donated by on of our Spalding based growers to provide a beautiful link to the shop window of the bulb industry.

Festival Gardens 'Spring Blooms' during 2020 may be viewed on our You Tube Video Slide Shows:
The 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.
They have welcomed some new additions, as innovative designer, Stephen Newby unveiled a collection of his spectacular stainless steel sculptures throughout the landscaped gardens. The ‘blown’ steel sculptures are largely based around a water theme, featuring a water pyramid fountain, pillow planters and a specially commissioned 15’ ‘Kaleidoscope Wheel’, situated in the canal.
During Spring the Gardens feature a magnificent display of daffodils, tulips and other bulbs celebrating the gardens close links to the bulb industry.
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.
PLEASE NOTE only assistance dogs are allowed in the gardens.
