Ramster Garden springs into action with special 2 for 1 offer
Monday, March 5, 2018
Ramster Garden in Chiddingfold Surrey is celebrating the arrival of spring and our first weekend of opening with a special 2 for 1 offer on adult entry on Sunday 18th March 2017 (10am until 5pm).
Say goodbye to winter and hello to spring with a walk around our much loved Ramster Garden. See the snow drops and primroses as they burst into flower marking the start of garden’s spectacular flowering season. Be dazzled by the array of brilliant yellow daffodils and look out for the unmistakable native Narcissus pseudonarcissus with its delicate creamy outer petals and a deep yellow centre.
Don’t miss the kaleidoscope of flowers along Camellia Walk which delight you with patterns and colours resembling raspberry ripple ice cream. The camellias which mostly originate from Japan give a fantastic show of colour from the deepest shades of pink through to the purest white during March.
“It is almost like a fairy tale; the garden suddenly comes to life with the most exquisite flowers and colours,” says Rosie Glaister, who runs the family owned garden. “A few early birds from our rhododendrons collection may already be out including R. cilpiense hybrid, R. 'Prince Camille de Rohan' and R. 'Rosa Mundi' one of our most reliable performers forming banks of pink blooms.”
Explore over 20 acres of magical woodland and see for the first time the Valley of the Giants which features exotic trees recognised by TROBI (Tree Register of Britain & Ireland) for their remarkable sizes. Trees include Eastern Hemlock, the Giant Sequoia, the Grand Fir currently standing at 47m and the prize Japanese Cedar which can reach almost 7,000 years old.
As you walk around Ramster Garden you will also discover enchanting sculptures and natural carvings of wild boar, chickens, a fox and an owl bench. Visitors can relax after their walk in the Tea House which serves delicious cakes, sandwiches, snacks and drinks.
Ramster Garden opens daily from 17th March - 10th June 2018. The special 2 for 1 offer on adult entry applies to Sunday 18th March only, normal admission applies at all other times. Membership which entitles visitors to unlimited visits during opening times is available. Free parking and discounted group rates for 15+ people. Dogs on leads are welcome in the garden
