Snowdrop Week and Botanical Art Exhibition

About

Drifts of Snowdrops can be enjoyed at Easton Walled Gardens and these delightful winter flowers release a powerful scent of honey on cold, sunny days. We love Snowdrops so much that we dedicate a whole week to celebrate its beauty. Easton Walled Gardens opens its gates for Snowdrop Week on Saturday 15th of February and there is no better place to enjoy swathes of snowdrops, aconites and hellebores as well as innovative spring planting schemes, all spread over 12 acres of beautiful, 400-year-old restored gardens.

“In 2001, the gardens were lost to nature so we began to clear the gardens of brash and brambles. In patches we could see snowdrops hanging on in the undergrowth. As the light was allowed back in, the snowdrops began to recover. We have encouraged them and they now spread across two banks alongside the river. Around these naturalised plantings we have added hellebores, crocuses, daffodils and blue chionodoxa. Throughout the gardens you can see pretty groupings of early flowering perennials and small bulbs”. Ursula Cholmeley, Garden Owner, Easton Walled Gardens.

This years’ event… Easton Walled Gardens presents the Botanical Art Exhibition, entitled ‘Wildflowers’ featuring the work of Dawn Wright, Dianne Sutherland and Polly Sutherland, all well-respected botanical artists in the field of botanical drawing and painting. The exhibition will take place in the Coach House at Easton Walled Gardens and entry is included with the garden admission fee. The Art Exhibition runs from Saturday 15th February until Sunday 15th March, on our usual open days.

Guided Snowdrop Tours with garden owner, Ursula Cholmeley and Head Gardener, Ollie Ryan-Moore. will be available to book in advance and will take place before the gardens open to the general public giving visitors an exclusive, behind the scenes look at the snowdrops with advice on how to grow and divide snowdrops, as well as giving tips on naturalising your own collection.
