Galanthus nivalisWhere has winter gone? ...........to celebrate Christmas in temperatures of double digits has been very strange and ‘deep and crisp and even’ is only for Carols this year. Aconites glow with more intensity each day so the patches of yellow grow larger. Daffodils push yellow trumpets ever upwards, so an early season. Many people have struggled with rain and more rain bringing misfortune and making life very difficult. For us the ground is sodden and the sky is dismal, but all the joys of seeing Snowdrops is near and green buds are quietly nosing through. So here is our New 2016 List of Snowdrops, hopefully it will be interesting for those who love to garden.
As usual our annual ‘Snowdrop Saturday will be held this year on 13 February 2016. On this day visitors are able to view the Snowdrop Collection within the Garden, see examples of Snowdrops in a Pot and Photograph Exhibition, meet & talk to Snowdrop Gardeners, enjoy a welcome cup of tea or mug of St. Michael’s Soup and buy a Snowdrop or two! In addition, at 11.00 am. a Guided Snowdrops Walk will take place. Here a brief overview of Snowdrop identification will then lead visitors on a short walk where interesting Snowdrops will be pointed out and discussed in an informal tour. There will be a charge of £5.00. There will be many Snowdrop occasions such as ‘Walks’ and ‘Garden Opens’ throughout the country so see what is on in your local area.

Locally visit Welford Park in Berkshire, here Galanthus nivalis ‘en mass,’ in spendour, they are a wonderful sight, the grounds are open throughout February (check the website.) On Thursday 25 February Welford Park will have it’s annual MacMillan Plant Fair
With many stalls and a superb opportunity to view this spectacular Collection, see you there.
