Since it began recently, thousands of visitors have visited the Gardens to view more than 14,000 tulips on display in formal beds and tubs. The event, run in conjunction with Bloms Bulbs, has been several months in the planning, with planting having taken place in November 2014.

Using late flowering bulbs, all the preparations have paid off and the event has once again provided a riot of colour to brighten the early spring.

A spokesperson for the gardens said: “The Tulip Festival has been a great success again this year. People love seeing the tulips and are often amazed at the amount of varieties that actually exist.”
The event runs until Saturday (9 May), with the Gardens open between 10am and 5.30pm daily.
