Daffodils light up for golden hello to spring
VISITORS to Godinton gardens’ annual daffodil days will be greeted by a carpet of yellow. The wild garden at the historic home on the edge of Ashford is famous for its fabulous display of daffodils and spring flowers, including crocuses, fritillaries, anemones and cyclamen, which always produce a wonderful show. Nick Sandford, manager of Godinton House and gardens, said “We all look forward to the last Sunday in March when the gardens look lovely, and for more than 50 years all the entrance money is given to the National Garden Scheme, which raises money for so many good causes.” Visitors will be able to buy a season ticket for the gardens so they can pop back throughout the seasons to enjoy the everchanging spectacle. Godinton’s gardens will be open from Sunday until the end of October from Thursday to Monday between 2pm and 5.30pm. The house opens from Good Friday until October 7 every Friday, Saturday and Sunday between 2pm and 5.30pm, with the last guided tour of its medieval hall and many stunning rooms, boasting 500 years of local history, starting at 4.30pm.
