About this region

The West Midlands enjoys a temperate maritime climate with warm summers and cool winters. The rainfall amount is high and falls fairly evenly throughout the course of the year, meaning that gardens throughout the year are neither too dry or too wet for plants to flourish and grow. 

In the West Midlands, gardeners will find that the majority of land is made up of slightly acidic loamy and clayey soils, however, many different soil types can be found throughout the region.  

The West Midlands enjoys a massive variety of different plants including Snowdrops, Bluebells, wild Cherry Trees, Fruit Trees and many more. Many of the plants found within the East Midlands are, of course, also found in the West due to the two regions being next to each other. 

There are dozens of abundant public gardens to visit through the West Midlands. Some favourites include the Birmingham Botanical Gardens and Glasshouses, The Dorothy Clive Garden, Westonbury Mill Water Gardens, Biddulph Grange Garden, Attingham Park in Shrewsbury and Hodnet Hall Gardens in Market Drayton.
