Crocus Week

March 2 - March 10

Event Navigation

Crocus Week, when these jewel-like flowers will carpet the lawns, takes place from Saturday 2nd March to Sunday 10th March, although many bulbs will have been in bloom since mid-February, particularly along the top of the south lawn and in the Rockery.

The Gift Shop (10am to 5pm), Tearoom (10.30am to 4.30pm), Plant Centre (10am to 5pm)  and Eeles Pottery (11am to 4pm) are all open daily.

The Plant & Gardening Fair takes place on  Sunday 3rd March, within Crocus Week, so what better reasons are there for visiting Forde Abbey at this delightful time of year. Admission on 3rd March will be at a special reduced rate of £3. This includes the Plant & Gardening Fair and admission to the award-winning gardens.

Join Joshua Sparkes, our head gardener, for a Spring inspired amble on the dates listed below, starting with a cup of tea or coffee and a slice of cake. Tickets will be £10 per person in addition to entry to the gardens. Please meet by the entrance to the shop at 11am.

Saturday, 9th March, 11am
Sunday 10th March, 11am

During the rest of Crocus Week, normal admission rates apply.
