” Snowdrops/ Galanthus in the Green” 

We have 160+ 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, so 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 before 20th February.

At our Snowdrop Weekends a wide range of Galanthus will be available in pots / in the green. 

    Galanthus plicatus ‘Trym’

Its mid December & we’re closed for winter but we’re still working at keeping the gardens looking good to go into spring, vibrant colour is coming from red, orange, black & yellow stemmed shrubs. Scented flowers Mahonias, Saroccoccas, Skimmias,  still flowering Hesperanthas, Helleborus, Hardy Cyclamens, Red foliage Bergenias. Orange seed heads of Physalis (Chinese lantern) are still looking good.

We hope that we’ll be open again in February, check here after Feb. 20th for dates of Snowdrop events or register for our monthly e-newsletter
