Springtime in Kew Gardens

Events, Things to Do, What's New — By Erin Gallagher Maury on March 31, 2010 at 8:00 am

If there’s one thing a Londoner appreciates, it’s a nice day. So, when the temperature hits 50 & daylight savings time ends, the locals shed their winter coats, emerge from their houses like hatching birds and hit the green spaces. No where better to experience England’s glorious spring garden culture are the Royal Botanical Gardens of Kew or as called by the regulars, Kew Gardens. From now through the end of May, over 5 million bulbs of tulips, daffodils, snowdrops, crocus and alliums will burst into bloom. Kew’s website regularly updates their bulb watch map with the not-to-miss displays of flowers. Pack a picnic and head for the show.
