2. Wild Garlic in flower

Wild garlic grows all the way along the banks of the River Mole. You can spot the stunning delicate white flowers when walking along the south of the lake and around the Mausoleum and cascade.

3. Fresh leaves on the trees

Spring has truly sprung! The fresh leaves are coming out of the trees, starting with the ash and sycamore trees.

4. Dragons

Magical beasts have come to lay their eggs at Painshill this springtime. It is a trail that’s perfect for all the family. Pick up a route map in the Visitor Centre and see if you can spot them all.

5. Vines emerging

The landscape staff and volunteers work hard in the vineyard throughout the year. New vines are planted in the autumn and hopefully we will soon start to see the fruits (grapes!) of their labours. April is when the fresh growth starts to appear.
