The Weir Garden


Swainshill, Hereford,


The Weir Garden is an unusual and stunning garden of four hectares (ten acres) with sweeping views along the River Wye and Herefordshire countryside.

At The Weir Garden, the National Trust have managed to create a varied habitat for a wide range of wildlife, with the garden itself spectacular all year round – drifts of spring bulbs give way to wild flowers, followed by autumn colour.

The Weir is an all year round tranquil river side garden but its best display of flowers and bulbs is probably in the spring.

From around mid January to late May you can visit the garden everyday to see something new bursting through the tree roots. You’ll enjoy walking through the snowdrops during January which then make way for daffodils, scilla, chinodoxa and bluebells as spring marches on.
You can visit every weekend in January everyday of the week from 31st January to see what you can identify coming through the ground.
