Snowdrop community plant

Snowdrops under a yew tree by Dyffryn House

Become a part of our beautiful gardens and plant one of our 10,000 snowdrops to create a blanket of winter blooms for visitors to enjoy in years to come.

Plant a snowdrop

Over two weeks in February* we will be planting 10,000 snowdrops to create a beautiful snowdrop walk and we are inviting you to help.

In the last two years we have planted over 20,000 snowdrops and we will be doing the same in 2018. You can see some of the previous year's poking their heads out around the gardens now.

How you can get involved

Upon arrival at Visitor's Reception, you will be guided towards the best area for planting, which will be determined by our gardeners on the day. The snowdrop planting will be led by our volunteers who will be able to provide guidance and give tools and materials needed.

On each day of planting, we will also be accepting donations for the restoration of one of the biggest features here at Dyffryn Gardens.

* Dates will be confirmed shortly, as the bulbs need to be planted 'in the green' the weather effects the growth rate therefore when they will be ready to be planted.
