Snowdrop Walk – From 08 February 

A heavenly carpet of snowdrops will provide a magical trail for visitors to follow at Hever Castle & Gardens from 08 February.

Around 80,000 snowdrop bulbs have been planted in the Gardens over the past few years including a mix of single and double snowdrops, interspersed with some unusual varieties such as the yellow tipped ‘Wendy’s Gold’, a giant galanthus called ‘Colossus’ which at 9 inches is one of the tallest snowdrops you can find and Galanthus ‘Green Brush’ with its unusual green tipped flowers.

Award winning garden writer Val Bourne will also be giving a talk entitled The Wonderful World of Galanthophilia on Saturday 8 February at 1pm.

Head gardener Neil Miller says: “We have planted some exciting varieties in the last few years including Galanthus Athenae – one of the earliest to flower, usually by the end of November, Galanthus Magnet, Galanthus Viridapice and Galanthus Picatus warham.”

If you are feeling energetic you can also take the peaceful one hour Hever Lake Walk which will take you around the perimeter of the 38 acre lake.

*We recommend that you wear suitable footwear such as wellington boots or walking boots as the ground may be boggy in places.
