Have a sen­sa­tional Sun­day with the help of some del­i­cate but de­light­ful blooms spring­ing up at Great Comp Gar­dens’ Snow­drop Sen­sa­tion.

They’re the first signs of spring – and they’re spring­ing up across the county. An­gela Cole looks at one spe­cial day de­voted to the sim­ple snow­drop that prom­ises to be a sen­sa­tion.

You may not have heard of a galan­thophile, but you'll have heard of what it is they're par­tic­u­larly en­thu­si­as­tic about. Snowdrops are their pas­sion – and whether you're a galan­thophile or not, you can in­dulge a love of the tiny white flow­ers this week­end, at Great Comp Gar­den's Snow­drop Sen­sa­tion.

The plant fair at the Bor­ough Green gar­den is put to­gether by Joe Shar­man, and will fea­ture talks and ad­vice from ex­perts, plus plants to brighten your Fe­bru­ary.

Great Comp is usu­ally closed this month, but the fair is a rare chance to see the dis­plays of snowdrops and helle­bores at their peak.

Gar­den writer Val Bourne will host a lec­ture on the day, fo­cussing on spring bulbs, and giv­ing prac­ti­cal green-fin­gered in­for­ma­tion.

Also on hand to talk plants will be Great Comp Gar­den cu­ra­tor Wil­liam Dyson, who will be show­ing off his prize helle­bores.
