A Bloom and Wild spokesperson said: “Tulip flowers are elegant, delicate and come in almost all colours imaginable.

“The variety of choice makes tulips one of the most interesting flowers to see in spring.”

The best time to see tulips is from late April to May although some early varieties bud in March.

Regent’s Park in London is the top spot for tulip spotting although Dunham Massey in Cheshire is another great destination for tulips.



The spokesperson said: “Roses are the classic go-to flowers for bouquets. But their beauty and delicate scent are even more spectacular if you can appreciate them amidst a serene garden walk.”

The best time to see roses in the UK is between March and June, depending on the variety of bloom.

According to Bloom and Wild, Grade 1 listed Wrest Park in Bedfordshire is one of the best destinations to see British roses.

Threave Garden in Castle Douglas and Inverewe Garden in Wester Ross also made the top spots for British roses.

Abermawr in Pembrokeshire, Stoneywell in Leicestershire and Clumber Park in Nottinghamshire were named the best spots to see bluebells.

Wild Orchids

Wild orchids are a particularly special sight and although rare, could be spotted at Askrigg Bottoms Meadow in North Yorkshire between May and September.


Daisies are easy to find in any wild grassy area but the Pembrokeshire Coast Path has some particularly beautiful varieties.

Balranald National Park and Minnowburn in Belfast are also the perfect spots to sight some stunning daisies.
