Snowdrop Walk: from 9 february 2022

Around 100,000 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 in the Winter Garden 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. A walk in the gardens at this time will provide a welcome boost to flagging winter spirits.

Wrap up warm and stroll through the extensive gardens and grounds and enjoy snowdrops plus the blossoms of camellia, quince, daphnes, hellebores and early daffodils such as ‘Early Sensation’. In the Winter Garden discover a wonderful selection of heathers and dogwoods including Cornus ‘Sanguinea’. Then head to the Moat Restaurant for a warming drink and bite to eat to to round off a lovely day.

Garden writer and galanthophile Val Bourne will also be delivering a snowdrop talk on Saturday 12 February .

A self-guided snowdrop walk will be available for you to follow. Download TBC.
