    Snowdrop season

    Snowdrops are the first bulbs to bloom and show signs of life after the winter months, flowering between January and March. Creating carpets of white, these delicate plants are a reminder that spring will soon be on its way. To ensure you don’t miss out, here are our top spots for snowdrops in the East of England.
