After what seems like an eternity of cold, dark days, spring will finally be welcomed with open arms on the 31st March, just in time for one of our favourite days of the year - Mother’s Day! If you want to show Mum how appreciated she is, treat her to a Mother’s Day lunch at one of the many eateries at The Trentham Estate in Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire.

Everyone at Trentham Gardens was really saddened to hear of the death of Gordon Banks. He was a regular visitor and we loved seeing his smiling face walking around the lake and gardens. We know he'll be missed by staff and visitors alike who were in awe of this humble legend.
Staffordshire’s award-winning Trentham Gardens will burst to life - and riot of colour - for its first ever Spring Festival to celebrate the 15th anniversary of the historic estate re-opening to the public.
After some wintery weather over the last few weeks the gardening team have welcomed the milder, sunny days. We've been able to start clearing away the dead material from flower beds to make way for the new shoots of spring.

We first renamed Black Friday in November 2015 to raise funds for Shelter and this year we’ve taken things one step further, baking our pies in a black charcoal-pastry.
One of the England’s most-visited garden attractions provides a spectacular show for winter: a perfect natural wonderland for a seasonal walk complete with fragrant woodland trails, and even frosty fairies.
October half term is an opportunity to plan in some fun activities with the kids, grandkids, or children in your care. However, as the school holidays seem to appear from nowhere (every single time!) it can be difficult to plan entertaining and affordable activities at the last minute.
This month has been a good chance for the gardens team to crack on with making sure everything looks sharp and neat before the winter weather sets in. We’ve been clipping the Portugese laurels (Prunus lusitanica) in their beautiful Versaille inspired containers down the main walk of the Italian Garden.
Visitors to The Trentham Estate can help say ‘Thank You’ to all those who served and sacrificed in the First World War during a special remembrance event within the Shopping Village later this month.
