My favourite snowdrop. . . Galanthus nivalis
By Susan Cunliffe-Lister, Burton Agnes Hall, East Yorkshire
Why I love Galanthus nivalis
We love snowdrops at Burton Agnes Hall because they cover the ground in the woodland in February when there is so little happening in the garden. They never need weeding or dead heading and seed themselves.
They really lift the spirits and on a sunny day when they are fully out the scent is magic.
Plant this in your garden if. . .
You have a woodland area or shady shrub border.
Where can you see Galanthus nivalis
Visit Burton Agnes Hall on the A614 between Bridlington and Driffield.
Snowdrop open days in 2011: 5 February until 6 March. See the Burton Agnes Hall website for further information.
