At over 600` above sea level, snowdrop time is a welcome start to the new year. We can not pretend to have the right to say we have acres of snowdrops, as seen with traditional historical old halls . However we have got a large collection of Galanthus nivalis and flora plena which were planted over 15 years ago being used extensively throughout the garden. This demonstrates how quickly they will multiply, if replanted on a regular basis. To add to this we have a collection of the more unusual snowdrops, such as Wendys Gold, Cowhouse Green etc. This are available for viewing, with spring flowering plants such as Hellebore orientalis, Hammellis mollis etc) This year project is turning what was the hen pen, into a new woodland area, giving us the opportunity to house more spring flowering plants.
