Bournemouth is one of the UK’s most beautiful seaside towns and has gardens and parks covering 2000 acres. The town is famous for its Upper, Central and Lower gardens, which were first established in Victorian times. It is possible to walk from the sea through one and a half miles of these gardens running through the town centre. Colourful, richly scented flower beds can be found in the Lower Garden, and this is also the place where many different events are held in the Pine Walk bandstand. You can see heathers, rhododendrons and stunning rose borders in the Central gardens which run from the town centre to Coy Pond. In contrast, a range of different flowers from three continents, including species from Europe, Asia and North America, can be seen in the Upper Gardens. This is also a great spot for a picnic.
The town’s Chines (cuttings that go down to the sea) are also beautiful plant filled gardens themselves. Allum Chine has a tropical terrace garden overlooking the sea, featuring many exotic species. The Italianate gardens at Boscombe are also well worth a visit and there is a famous rockery garden next door, which is the largest of its kind in the UK, featuring a range of alpine plants.
The town invests a lot of time and money in creating spectacular floral displays, in fact last year it won eight gold awards in the South and South East Bloom awards, as well as Gold in the coastal category of the Britain in Bloom competition.
The town will be commemorating the 100th anniversary of the First World War through several events that will feature flowers. For example, the city’s entry in the Entente Florale Europe competition will include two dedicated flower beds in the Lower Gardens as a dedication to the war poet Rupert Brooke, whose poem The Soldier was partially written in Bournemouth in 1915. Also, the winning First World War postcard design in the Postcards for Peace competition will be recreated in a flower bed in the Lower Gardens.
Just outside Bournemouth, at Canford Cliffs, near Sandbanks, are the Compton Acres gardens which cover 10 acres. Key attractions include an Italian Garden with large scale colourful flower beds, topiary and statues, the Rock and Water Garden featuring 300 species of plants and the Japanese garden featuring Asian flowering shrubs, maples and hybrid azaleas.
Wherever you live in the Bournemouth area, you can bring the joyful scents and colours of fresh flowers into a friend or loved one’s living room by ordering flower deliveries from the easy to use Arena Flowers website. There are arrangements to suit every budget.
