RHS Garden Rosemoor at Torrington already has drifts of snowdrops in the garden, with the first one spotted on December 18. The garden is hosting Snowdrop Weekend on Saturday and Sunday, February 1-2, which will feature guided walks, illustrated talks, and nurseries with rare and unusual varieties for sale. There is a talk each day on 'Snowdrops in Context' by Dr Julian Sutton of Desirable Plants in the Small Garden Room. This is the perfect event for both expert 'galanthophiles' and visitors who simply appreciate these shy but stunning early spring flowers. There will also be handmade snowdrop and horticultural-themed craft items made from fine birch wood and pressed Somerset paper on sale from Natty Deco in the Lecture Hall. Garden admission applies.
