Spring is coming to Sunnycroft

Sunnycroft, the National Trust house in Wellington is looking forward to the first glimpses of spring.

On Sunday 9th February 2014 Sunnycroft will be holding a series of snowdrop walks which will consist of a short introduction into the world of the snowdrop by local galanthophile* Eddie Roberts followed by a walk around the garden to highlight the variations in the species. Eddie will be on-hand in-between walks to answer any questions. There will also be the chance to buy a selection of cultivated varieties of snowdrops.  

Gardener Joel Richards says: “Although this day is a celebration of the snowdrop and a chance to find out more it is not the only opportunity to see our collection of these delicate spring bulbs. The grounds will be displaying a refined collection of cultivated snowdrops throughout February and to see something different from the norm it is worth having a look.”

Walks will be at 11.30am, 1pm and 2.30pm. There is no need to book in advance but places will be limited so get in early on the day. Sunnycroft tea room and grounds are open for winter weekends from 10.30am to 3pm. Entry to the house is by guided tour only; tours run on the hour from 11am – 2pm. Snowdrop walks are free but standard admission charges apply for entry; free to National Trust members and Under 5s. Donations are welcome.
