A riot of Spring colour awaits visitors to one of Kent’s most celebrated private gardens on April 1st, when Hole Park, in Rolvenden, opens its gates for the 2024 season.

From the first day of opening, the 16-acres of gardens will be bursting with Spring delights both formal and wild – from pink magnolia and cherry blossom and beds full of brightly coloured tulips to lawns dotted with crocuses and daffodils and banks of nodding fritillaries.

Hole Park’s 10 acres of woodlands will be carpeted with wild primroses, wood anemones and bright blue scillas: the precursors to the emergence of the garden’s renowned annual Bluebell Spectacular. The magical bluebell event attracts hundreds of visitors each year, eager to see one of Nature’s most impressive shows as the woodland floor becomes a sea of violet-blue from mid-April to mid-May. The Hole Park website’s bluebell barometer will provide regular updates on when the bluebells are reaching their peak.
