Arundel Castle’s stunning walled gardens are awash with an explosion of brightly coloured summer blooms.

The Wildflower area is flourishing, with varieties such as the bright red Shirley Poppy, yellow Californian Poppy, blue Californica Cornflower and the purple Fairy Toadflax on display.

Perennial Wildflowers have also been planted throughout the gardens including the Yellow Rattle which actually rattles with seeds during the hot summer months!

A fantastic display of dinner-plate sized Babylon Dahlias has come into bloom in the Cut Flower Garden, many of which stand at over one metre tall. Striking Canna Lilies and beautiful Salvias have also flowered, making this an ideal time to visit the gardens.

Alongside the bright flowers, an abundance of summer fruit and vegetables has ripened for the garden team to harvest. Traditional apples, pears and raspberries are being grown in the Organic Kitchen Garden with exotic paw paws, guava and tamarillos in the Tropical Glass House.

Head Gardener Martin Duncan commented: “This is my favourite time of year for the gardens as there is so much to see and marvel at. Our garden team are on-hand to answer any questions that visitors may have, so they can try to replicate our displays at home.”

The Castle gardens are open from 10am until 5pmTuesday to Sunday, Mondays in August and Bank Holiday Mondays. Tickets start from £9.

A season ticket is also available for £30 which allows unlimited* access to the grounds and gardens, during our open season, excluding special events, for one calendar year from the date of purchase.
