7th February to 29th February at Hever Castle and Gardens
A walk in the gardens at this time will provide a welcome boost to flagging winter spirits. Wrap up warm and enjoy a self-led tour of the snowdrops. During your stroll you will also be able to learn interesting facts about snowdrops.
Around 140,000 snowdrop bulbs have been planted in the Gardens over the past few years including a mix of single and double snowdrops, interspersed with some unusual varieties in the Winter Garden such as the yellow tipped ‘Wendy’s Gold’, a giant Galanthus called ‘Colossus’ which at 9 inches is one of the tallest snowdrops you can find and Galanthus ‘Green Brush’ with its unusual green tipped flowers.
Discover the blossoms of camellia, quince, daphnes, hellebores and early daffodils such as ‘Early Sensation’. In the Winter Garden discover a wonderful selection of heathers and dogwoods including Cornus ‘Sanguinea’. Then head to the Moat Café for a warming drink and bite to eat to to round off a lovely day.
We will also be creating a Snowdrop Watch page so you can see exactly what the snowdrops are looking like before you visit.
