Snowdrops of Springhill House - Gareth Austin

Snowdrops Springhill House in February

The Snowdrops of National Trust SpringHill House are stunning, large carpets can be found in the lawns of the 17th century plantation house (dating from 1680), I took a wee spin up recently to have a wee dander and see what all the chat was about....Head Gardener John has been busy splitting and replanting clumps to increase the area covered...and over time these will merge to create a great sway of snowdrops...I'm looking forward to this!
