Can you believe tomorrow is April 1st?
We have had the most crazy weather up here in the last couple of days – after a wonderfully mild and sunny spell last week, this week saw the return of snow, hail and other wintery showers. The longer days and the plentiful daffodils on the ground, do however signal that Spring is starting to appear in our Gardens and we are very much looking forward to a busy season ahead with garden openings, workshops and event at Teasses.
April starts us off with our weekend opening on Saturday 2nd and Sunday 3rd (10:00-16:00). Sunday is a particular special opening as we will open the garden with Scotland’s Gardens Scheme and our admission income will be donated to charity (50% via SGS to their supported charities and 50% to British Red Cross – Ukraine Crisis Appeal). So it is a great cause to come out and your tickets purchases will make a difference. If you are visiting us on Sunday we will also have a small Artists’ Market in the Walled Garden, so do come out and support your local craft-makers and small businesses. You can pre-book your tickets for both Saturday and Sunday here.
Another exciting appointment in the Garden will be our ‘Easter at Teasses’ event, which will take place on Easter Sunday, April 17th (10:00-16:00). Tickets for this event are already available via our ticketing partner Candide (book here) and we have lots of fun activities planned, as this is a family friendly event.
Our gardens will continue to be open on Wednesday (10:00-16:00) throughout April and don’t forget Garden Memberships are available for £18.50 here.
We are also very excited about our new Tea Room in the Walled Garden (Greenhouses) run by the lovely James. The Tea Room is open during every garden opening, so don’t forget to grab a cuppa and a slice of cake after your jaunt through the gardens (or before!).
We look forward to seeing you at Teasses this April!
