We’re now in the midst of one of the most beautiful times of the year here, when over five million snowdrops carpet the wooded areas of the Garden.  No one knows how they got here, but their number and natural beauty makes them one of Gloucestershire’s must-see events.  They are now in full bloom, and (weather permitting) will be looking lovely until the end of the month.  For the latest info check out the latest update here. There are 15 varieties in total here in the Garden, with the most famous being Galanthus “Atkinsii“, a particularly tall and handsome snowdrop.  This was discovered here in the 1800s by James Atkins, who lived in an estate cottage here. The main collection of snowdrops is in the Snowdrop Grove, with more modern varieties above the maze.
