Please send us an email to say that you’re interested in attending so that we can notify you as soon as we know if we’re going ahead.

“ Snowdrops/ Galanthus in the Green” We have 100+ varieties of Galanthus on display in the gardens & some of our snowdrops are not readily available from other sources. If you’re looking for that ‘very special variety’ please first send an email query to see if we have it available this year. Because the more unusual Galanthus take much longer to multiply we divide only every third year and can quickly sell out of them, only plants reserved and paid for in advance will be guaranteed available for collection. Your ordered bulb will be lifted from the gardens specifically for you when we know you are coming. We therefore do not issue a complete plant list, No orders taken after 31st January.
At our Snowdrop Weekends a wide range of Galanthus will be available in pots / in the green.

Scented flowers Mahonias, Saroccoccas, Skimmias, Wintersweet and still flowering Hesperanthas. Already Willows, Hellebores, Hardy Cyclamens, Primulas & Red foliage on Bergenias are looking good alongside Snowdrops.
