SNOWDROPS

Deep in the winter, leafless trees stand against dismal skies the landscape is quiet and cold. Christmas is over a New Year is on its way. The countryside has been battered by storms, our gardens are sodden and it’s all a bit bleak. But life is out there many signs of growth are peaking through so we have plenty to be thankful for, take a wander and this will lift the gloomy thoughts which might linger on January days.

So here is The Snowdrop Catalogue for 2014, within its pages descriptions and information which may be of interest. There have been changes for Foxgrove Plants - our final ‘big’ RHS Flower Show was the Gardeners' World Live last June then we closed our gates and stopped propagating plants as we have been doing since the mid 80’s. We exhibited at a few small shows later in the year, but the days of showing plants are now over. This was a decision which had to be made as life is not a constant and a change of direction was necessary. Growing Snowdrops will remain the important factor for the Nursery, we shall open at this time and still deliver to customers. Once the Snowdrop Season ends then we shall close once more until the next time.

Due to changes of day for the RHS February Flower Show we shall not exhibit our usual Galanthus Exhibit, which was our very first flower show back in 1986. This is sad and would not have been so if things had remained as they always have been, but the end of Tuesday and Wednesday London flower shows will be the end of an era. But that is the way of things, never mind life goes on in a different way.

As usual our annual 'Snowdrop Saturday' will be held this year on 15th February 2014. On this day visitors are able to view the Snowdrop Collection within the Garden, see examples of Snowdrops in a pot & 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! So, as we shall not see  familiar faces in London, call down to us on 15th February instead. The proceeds will go to our local church, St. Michael & All Angels, Enborne.  There will be many Snowdrop occasions such as ‘Walks’ and ‘Gardens Open’ throughout the country so see what is on in your local area.
