Crocus Week

February 27 - March 7

Event Navigation

Spreading over 10 acres, with the former Cistercian monastery as an impressive backdrop, the flowers put on a beautiful show and are normally at their best at the beginning of March.

The flowers, mostly wild Crocus vernus and Crocus tommasinianus, come up with swathes of wild daffodils each year.

To see blankets of purple crocuses and little yellow daffodils on a sunny day is absolutely stunning, says Alice Kennard who lives at Forde Abbey with her family.

The Plant & Gardening Fair takes place on  Sunday 7th March, within Crocus Week, so what better reasons are there for visiting Forde Abbey at this delightful time of year.

Please check the website closer to the time, as you’ll appreciate this is a changing situation and we are following Government advice.
