Snowdrop Walk – From 08 February 

See the final drifts of snowy white snowdrop bulbs and the early golden glow of daffodils hinting of spring ahead. 

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. Snowdrop Walk will provide a welcome boost to flagging winter spirits.

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

Wrap up warm and stroll through the rest of the extensive gardens to enjoy the early blossoms of camellia and quince. Then head to the Moat Restaurant for a warming drink and bite to eat to round off a lovely day.
