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.
