Let thousands of daffodils brighten your day – as you walk through woodland at the start of Spring and wash those winter blues away!
Celebrate The Arrival of Spring!
Join us at Ashton’s Garden Centre and celebrate the arrival of Spring and The Victoria Day Weekend, with a woodland walk lined with thousands of daffodils that’ll wash away those winter blues. With educational and interesting fact signage to be found along the way, opportunities for that perfect selfie, spots to sit and enjoy the scenery and a third of the walk along a river – you’ll feel the stresses of the world melt away as you enjoy the chance to get out after a long cold winter! We also have a large selection of Daffodils potted up and ready to take home (available whilst stocks last), with many varieties you will have seen during your walk. The Daffodil Walk & Spring Celebration is not to be missed rain or shine! It is Spring, after all!
Fun for All the Kids
Let the kids run free and enjoy the great outdoors. With magical signs along the walk, a free scavenger hunt and colouring sheet they’re sure to have fun! And with award winning Author Michelle Robinson making appearances on Saturday (21st May) even young children will find something to enjoy!

They are sneaky. They are stealthy. They are cunning… They’re the CROOKS!

Irreverent and adventurous, this picture book comedy sees everyone tip-toeing about at night, and is brought to life by Chris Mould’s expressive, gloriously detailed illustrations.
