From the Rhododendron Walk, cross The Wisteria Bridge, festooned in May with cultivars including the pink W. floribunda ‘Honibeni’ and bizarre double-flowered W. floribunda ‘Violacea Plena’, to The Bulb Meadow.
From late January to mid April, the ground in this area heaves with countless numbers of bulbs beginning with the first snowdrops, Cyclamen and Iris, and moving on through dwarf daffodils such as the frightened looking Narcissus cyclamineus with its swept back petals. April sees one of the finest colonies in the country of Erythronium revolutum, carpeting the ground under the boughs of a large Magnolia x loebneri.
Below is The Dovecote built as a memorial to William and Helena Heath at the request of a great benefactor to The Garden House, Mrs Dorothy Harris. In her will Mrs Harris established the William and Helena Heath Scholarship in the name of her parents. This fund provides for the employment and annual placement of a horticultural student at The Garden House.
