As snowdrops keep popping up in ever greater quantities we have been thinking about our open weekend for a while. (A reminder that we are open 17-18th February 11-4 each day.) This year we have had some challenges with trees around the pond being damaged in the storms and so this area has been re-planted with lots of new, but admittedly smaller trees and we have taken the opportunity to revamp this area completely; moving plants and generally giving everything a spring tidy as you will see if you make it to the open weekend. Snowdrops are looking good again this year. Some areas are really improving as the little white flowers begin to carpet the borders and woodland walks. Hellebores and Hamamelis are also out in good numbers for a bit of winter colour. Fingers crossed for a bright crisp and DRY weekend!
