Snowdrops

Galanthus spp.

Visible now

We have a mile of snowdrops stretching from our Lower Broadwalk, along our Lakeside walks and across to Springwoods.

A few years ago, one of horticulturists called Daryl, planted a heart shape of snowdrops in a small copse along the Broadwalk. It’s a bit hard to see now but can you make it out?

In 2017, we have some exciting new snowdrop cultivars – many can be found in Springwoods.

Galanthus ‘Lady Beatrix Stanley’  You should check out this gorgeous double chubby chick, with her delicate green flicks on the bottoms of her petticoats.
