- Early snowdrops in flower
Early snowdrops in flower
Ahead of the main displays in february, which will see areas of
the gardens carpeted with Snowdrops, two of our snowdrops
are already in flower.
Both are flowering on time and normally this early. The
first is a charming double snowdrop 'White Swan' which we have a
small clump of growing along the main path in the
The second can be found underneath the huge pink
flowered shrub (Viburum) in the centre of the Rock
Gardens. This lovely snowdrop comes from
turkey and in some years is in flower before Christmas!
Both are easy to grow (like most snowdrops), just, avoid very
wet or dry soils and plant in partial shade (not under evergreen
shrubs). Once planted just leave to their devices and resist
the urge to tidy up leaves. If you want more lift &
divide clumps every 3-4 year in may.
Ness grows over fifty different types of Snowdrops planted
throughout the gardens. If you want to find out more about
the snowdrops and other plants of winter interest why not
