Dazzling Daffodils at Hever

Hever Castle & Gardens From 18th - 24th March 2024

Hever Castle & Gardens, Hever Road, Hever, Edenbridge, UK

Dazzling Daffodils will run from Monday 18th to Sunday 24th March with twice daily tours with Johnny Walkers and Head Gardener, Neil Miller (Monday - Friday) and with the gardeners (Monday - Sunday).

The duo will take visitors on a magical mystery tour through time, revealing the secret delights of heritage bulbs that flower for decades (some for centuries), and the new varieties that continue to capture the public’s attention in spring.

Johnny Walkers has the Midas touch, being the recipient of 25 consecutive RHS Chelsea gold medals. His daffodil varieties have populated at Hever over the last 6 years thanks to a unique collaboration with head gardener Neil Miller who is keen to grow the dazzling display year on year.

Neil explains: “Our CEO Duncan had the wonderful idea of creating the Dazzling Daffodil event some 6 years ago and bringing Johnny Walkers on board. The event has grown and the relationship with Johnny and Taylors Bulbs has been hugely beneficial helping us to extend the flowering season. Visitors can now enjoy daffodils from the second week of March all the way to the end of April with the later varieties accompanying the tulips as they begin to bloom.”

Johnny Walkers says: “It’s always a special week for me and my wife when we are invited to join Neil Miller at Hever for Dazzling Daffodils. It’s such a special place, with a wonderful horticultural history. Whatever the weather, we always enjoy touring visors through Anne Boleyn’s Orchard where the collection of heritage daffodils never fails to engage and stimulate us all!”

Castle florist Pamela Brice will be creating daffodil displays inside the Castle itself and visitors can learn facts about daffodils as they follow the daffodil trail through the Estate.

Tours: Monday - Friday with Johnny. Walkers and Neil Miller 11:30am and 2pm, Saturday - Sunday 11:30am and 2pm with the gardening team.
