From February till March
Visit our stunning Snowdrop Festival during February and enjoy winter woodland walks through carpets of Snowdrops. The Gardens and Tea Room will be open daily from February 11th from 10.30am – 4pm.
There is a large collection of snowdrops mainly planted between the wars by Lady Grey, who was a great bulb enthusiast; over time, a number of natural hybrid’s have evolved and multiplied, and every now and then boffins descend on us and give them cultivar names on what to a layman might appear to be tiny differences. They are planted in large drifts throughout the garden, often with winter aconites, and make a fine display telling us all that spring is not far away.
