A couple enjoy the blooms on the terraces at Osborne.

Gold winners at South East in Bloom 2017, and best large attraction garden at Isle of Wight in Bloom 2017, Osborne’s peerless plantings delight avid gardeners, green fingered enthusiasts and beginners alike. As the summer approaches, and the fragrant borders and colourful terraces enter their most vibrant season, join us at our first ever Blooming Gardens event to enjoy them at their very best.

Showcasing the art and craft of Osborne’s highly skilled team of expert gardeners and volunteers, see behind the scenes and hear talks on the skills and techniques they employ to create an award winning garden. Enjoy exclusive garden tours and learn about Victoria and Albert’s plans for the terraces. Join Osborne’s head gardener on a tour and meet his top ten plants. Watch demonstrations of flower arranging and discover the art of bedding design. Hear all about our creative re-use of garden waste in a composting demonstration and pick up tips from our gardeners advice table. Peruse the stalls of local plant nurseries, take home something special, and get inspired and motivated to beautify your own garden.

Not just for gardeners, the whole family can enjoy the event with kids’ crafts, plentiful refreshments and light music on the lawns, and the entire historic estate of Osborne to explore, including Queen Victoria’s private beach. With all this to take in, Blooming Gardens at Osborne is the perfect way to welcome in the summer!
