January 2018 

There are various gardens which are within driving distance which have wonderful winter gardens, I can recommend Anglesey Abbey for inspiration, scent and stems, and Harlow Carr, both would be good between January and March.

Closer to home, many of our gardens are having special Snowdrop opening days in February, and I am giving those links here so that you can check specific opening times.  Hodsock Priory just over the border in Nottinghamshire has a splendid collection, and is well worth a visit. Easton Walled Gardens is now well established as a place not to be missed at snowdrop time.  Brightwater Gardens is one of the countries newest snowdrop and winter interest gardens. Snowdrops galore at Gunby Hall can also be enjoyed with guided walks, booking for these will be essential. Doddington Hall is having a Spring Bulbs pageant this year. There are many snowdrops in the garden at Belton House. Of course as we all know, just driving around through the Lincolnshire countryside one can often come across carpets of snowdrops, especially in old churchyards and woodland, so wherever you live, do get out and enjoy the season. Hackthorn Hall is just opening for one Sunday of snowdrops.
