When Spring rolls around, I feel so lucky to live in the UK as there's so many beautiful displays of different flowers to marvel at. Throughout the Spring and Summer months, there's so many flowers to see, from bluebells to wisteria, but today I am focusing on the one's you can see in April. Whether you're planning to take a look at them this year or you're saving this post for 2024, I hope you find some floral inspiration here.


White blossom, cherry blossom, blackthorn, hawthorn or apple, there's so many different types of blossom in the UK, it can be hard to keep track. Blossom can be seen amongst hedgerows or as beautiful trees, but all I know is a I like to soak up every second we have with them. My personal favourites are the chunky pink blossom trees as I love when the petals come fluttering down onto the ground. You can find these in pretty villages, parks and of course local gardens. Here are some places that I've seen that look spectacular: 

  • Doddington House and Gardens
  • The Stray, Harrogate
  • Greenwich Park


I'm certainly cheating putting daffodils in this line up as you can usually see them from as early as the end of February right around til mid-April. I thought they had to be included in this post so you save them for next year's bloom watch. One of the first flowers to come out in Spring, these yellow flowers are often see in the English countryside in small bunches, but at stately homes and gardens, they tend to be planted in excess, so they're well worth a visit in the Springtime. Did you know that there are up to 25 different varieties of daffodils and they daffodil field can continue on blooming for decades. Below are some places to check out: 

  • Waddesdon Manor
  • Stourhead House and Gardens
  • Wimpole Hall
  • Thriplow Village
  • Chatsworth House

Magnolia Tree English Gardens


Magnolia came out in April this year, but word to the wise, it's best to keep an eye out for them in late March also. Pink and white magnolia are the most common and their bell shaped petals make for a unique display of flowers often in large trees with draped branches. Some magnolia petals are even edible (double check the ones you can eat before doing so!), tasting almost gingery and can be used for pickling. These trees can be seen all over the country for a wonderful display of colour. 

Other flowers to keep an eye out for: 

  • Wood Anemone 
  • Rhododendrons 
  • Tulips
  • Gorse
  • Camelias
