Abbotsford Tulip Festival

May 4th, 2018 - June 10th, 2018

The gardening team at Abbotsford has teamed up with the horticultural students at Borders College and planted some 8,000 tulips, to provide a truly spectacular display for our visitors this May.
Take a stroll in Abbotsford's walled gardens and discover the colourful tapestry of tulips. With over 20 varieties, among them the subtle colours of Exotic Emperor and Evita contrasting with the rich tones of Recreado and Rai, in our formal walled garden, as well as our woodland walks and wildlife, Abbotsford is the place for tulips this season.
