Snowdrops at Welford Park @ Welford Park
Mar 1 @ 11:00 am – 3:00 pm

Upon arrival, enjoy hot refreshments before talking a walk around the beautiful grounds and admire the first signs of spring with Welford Park’s glorious Snowdrop collection.

The snowdrops at Welford Park were planted by the Norman monks to decorate their Church for the feast of Candlemas, and also for medicinal use. Close to the snowdrop woods there is also found wild aconitum, petasites and mistletoe all of which have strong healing properties.

You will also have access to The Welford Park Plant Fair which specialises in snowdrops, spring bulbs, herbaceous, shrubs and trees. Our Plant Fair has become renouned for its well chosen stalls and interesting plants.

Your ticket includes entrance to the grounds and Plant Fair, as well as a sandwich lunch at The Queens Arms in East Garston.
