The gardens will be open after our winter break to give you the chance to view the ‘ Heralds of spring’ & to discover some of the many different cultivars of snowdrops available. Between 11am & 3pm. Our newly decorated coffee shop will be open serving Baked Potatoes, hot soup, drinks etc.
“ 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 1st February.
At our Snowdrop Weekends a wide range of Galanthus will be available in pots / in the green.
