snowdrops

2019 - Snow Drops (Galanthus) at the Gardens below. 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).
