The beautiful spa town of Bath provides an idyllic setting for the Bath Spring Flower Show, held every May, and featuring flower arranging displays, flowers for sale, and lectures and talks by horticultural experts. Among the colourful and aromatic flowers you will find there are Fuchsias, Geraniums, Pansies and Carnations alongside the more exotic, such as cacti and Bonsai trees. The Bath Beekeepers have an annual exhibit where they can help you find flowers that bees love, and there is a farm food shop selling fresh, local, organic produce.
Beautiful flowers and gardens are such an integral aspect of Bath, it would be inevitable that there would be a flower arranging society. The Bath Floral Decoration Society holds meetings on the first Tuesday of every month, each of which include a lunch and demonstration. The society is very active and keen to help its members and visitors learn about, and appreciate the art of flower display and arrangements. The society also holds a special event at Christmas time.
The Spiked Star of Bethlehem, also known as Bath Asparagus is extremely rare nationally, but is abundant in and around Bath. It is a tall and graceful plant found in shady verges, in hedgerows and in woodland. Its flowers are greenish-white on stems that can grow to over a metre high, and being related to the Bluebell, it is very pretty. There is a great deal of biodiversity work being undertaken by Bath and East Somerset Council to ensure this very special plant with its wonderful flowers is protected and encouraged.
Bath is full of beautiful gardens. Within the beautiful Royal Victoria Park are the Botanic Gardens, created in 1887 and boasting one of the finest collections of flowers, trees and shrubs growing in limestone soil in the country. There is a wonderful collection of shrub roses, a scented walk, a rock garden with pool, and a replica Roman temple as a fine centrepiece, which is very popular for civil ceremonies and other functions. Blankets of coloured flowers against the leafy green trees and open skies make for a very special experience. All this beauty extends across nearly 10 acres so there is plenty to explore. Special tours are often arranged and experts come to the gardens to present talks and demonstrations.
The Georgian Garden is a loving reproduction of a 1780s garden, with the paths and flower beds in their original positions, thanks to the findings of an excavation many years ago by the Bath Archaeological Society. Accessed from Gravel Walk, it is open all year round and features shrubs, miniature trees and a wealth of beautiful flowers in a formal landscape.
Prior Park Landscape Garden is owned by The National Trust and provides peaceful woodland walks along with breathtaking views over Bath. It has one of only four Palladian bridges in the world, and the bridge is truly awe-inspiring. There is a wealth of wildlife to enjoy and many beautiful woodland flowers.
Henrietta Park covers 7 acres and is formally landscaped. It includes a sensory garden alive with wonderful scents, a rose-covered pergola, a white Wisteria, and shrub and flower beds arranged around a pool complete with a magnificent fountain. The park also boasts many fine trees as well as its beautiful flowers, and dates back to Victorian times.
Not too far away, in the village of Calne, Bowood House and grounds boasts an exquisite selection of Azaleas, Magnolias and Rhododendrons across 60 acres of beautiful countryside. Mostly woodland, it is only open for a few months of the year, during the flowering season and the vistas are breathtaking, full of vibrant colour and wonderful scents. Bowood House is particularly famous for its wonderful “Rhododendron Walks.”
