Snowdrops and Snowdrop Gardens

snowdrops

2015 - Snow Drops (Galanthus) at the Gardens below from around 3rd week of January depending on weather. We tell you where to see snowdrops, including family walks. All the places listed below are well known for their displays.

Did you know the Scientific name for Galanthus means milk flower. These lovely flowers are among the first to raise their heads in the New Year, when it is warm they release a fragrance. Look carefully at the snowdrops to see their green markings on the inside. Did you know that soldiers were so enchanted by snowdrops that they brought them back from the Crimean War battlefields to plant in their gardens (1853 - 1856).

Snowdrop collecting has now become very popular with some snowdrop bulbs selling for over £600. There are many varieties of snowdrops and some are shown below. Thousands of people look for places to see the snowdrops and we are pleased to list around 100. So get out and about perhaps with your camera - you will not be disappointed.
