Snowdrop Sunday

When? 16 February 2020
Where? Mapperton Gardens - Beaminster

  • Snowdrop Sunday
  • Snowdrop Sunday

The first signs of Spring are poking through at Mapperton Gardens as we prepare to welcome visitors for Snowdrop Sundays, though you may find crocuses and daffodils as well this year!

This annual tradition is an opportunity to enjoy a spot of fresh air with a peaceful woodland wander as well as exploring the topiary and grottoes of the formal Italianate gardens.

The Coach House café will be open offering hot drinks, cakes and light lunches, including warming soup and a selection of delicious sandwiches. Selected plants including snowdrops and reticulated irises will also be on sale.

Head Gardener Steven Lannin is looking forward to welcoming everyone: “February is a great month to get the wellies out and look around the garden with fresh eyes. The peaceful wild garden and woodlands offer space to stretch your legs and admire the early blooming spring flowers.”

Keen gardeners will find many different hellebores and camellias making an appearance around the gardens, and don’t forget to take a look inside the Orangery to spot the Abutilon, citrus flowers, begonias and tree ferns.

Snowdrop Sundays will be held on the 2nd, 9th and 16th February with entry open from 11am to 4pm. Admission is £5 per person with under 16s free, payable on entry.

Mapperton Estate will be making a donation to the National Garden Scheme from Snowdrop Sundays proceeds.

It is often spent with family and friends, the ones who have been by our side for last 12 months, and the ones we look to spend the next 12 months with. For many of us, a change is about to happen. We step into the New Year with a fresh vision of exciting things to come. Whatever you’re ... Read more...
