Snowdrops At Hever Castle
Snowdrops at Hever Castle | Crosskeys Day TripA heavenly carpet of snowdrops provides a magical trail for visitors to follow at Hever Castle and Gardens.
Around 100,000 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 in the Winter Garden such as the yellow tipped ‘Wendy’s Gold’ a giant 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. A walk in the gardens at this time of year provides a welcome boost of life and colour with hints of spring days.
As well as the white blanket of snowdrops there will be blossoms of camellia, quince, daphnes, hellebores and early daffodils such as ‘Early Sensation’. In the Winter Garden you can discover a wonderful selection of heathers and dogwoods including Cornus ‘Sanguinea’.
The trip includes entrance to the Castle and Gardens.
