SNOWDROP WALK – FROM 10 FEBRUARY

The Snowdrop Trail will start on February 10 and continue whilst the snowdrops are in flower.  A heavenly carpet of snowdrops will provide a magical trail for visitors to follow at Hever Castle & Gardens from 10 February 2018.  Around 70,000 snowdrop bulbs have been planted in the Gardens over the past few years including a mix of single and double snowdrops, interspersed with some unusual varieties such as the yellow tipped ‘Wendy’s Gold’, a giant galanthus called ‘Colossus’ which at 9 inches is one of the tallest snowdrops you can find and Galanthus ‘Green Brush’ with its unusual green tipped flowers.  Head gardener Neil Miller says: “We have planted some exciting varieties in the last few years including Galanthus Athenae – one of the earliest to flower, usually by the end of November, Galanthus Magnet, Galanthus Viridapice and Galanthus Picatus warham.”10 February – 18 February: daily.
