To get a view and IG snaps of the hydrangeas, plan your visit there from April to June as that's when they are in full bloom.

During this hydrangea season, Instagrammers will be spoilt for choice on photo backdrops. Hydrangea flowers in a myriad of colours like blue, purple, white, pink and red scatter all over the fields like flower-shaped snowflakes.
