I heard a rumor that there were snowdrops (Galanthus) blooming in the Winterthur Garden, so (tough job!) I decided to traipse into the garden yesterday afternoon to have a look. Thanks to help from Amy M., I found a strong stand of snowdrops of the December form along the stones of the upper Glade Garden. Plus a lovely single snowdrop just beyond the Box Scroll Garden at the beginning of the March Bank. Enjoyed seeing the tips of bulbs emerging from the rich soil before we’ve even made it to the winter solstice.
Come and see the first snowdrops of the season!
